Santa Fe police on Thursday arrested 36-year-old Shawn Perry on a sexual exploitation of a child charge. Police say he had child pornography on his computer.

Santa Fe police on Thursday arrested a 36-year-old man who they say had child pornography on his computer.

Why they thought this is unclear as a search warrant executed around 9 a.m. Monday is sealed, according to Santa Fe Police Sgt. Louis Carlos.

Shawn Perry, who lives in the 1500 block of Agua Fria, was being held Thursday night in the Santa Fe County jail without bond on one fourth-degree felony count of sexual exploitation of children.

A statement of probable cause filed for his arrest indicates that when police showed up to tell him about the search warrant, “Shawn looked up in the air, raised his hands over his head and said, ‘Oh no.’ ”

He later admitted to coming across child pornography while using the internet file-sharing site Frost Wire, but said the images were of 16-, 17- and 18-year-old girls, according to police.

The court document states the initial scan of Perry’s computer turned up “one confirmed child pornographic image was found along with 63 other suspected child pornographic images.”
