OLYMPIA, Wash. -

The Washington State Patrol says an Olympia man arrested for investigation of child pornography possession is a Washington Corrections Department community corrections officer.

In a statement, the State Patrol said 38-year-old Michael C. Boone was arrested Tuesday after detectives with the patrol's exploited children's task force got a search warrant to check his home computer for child porn.

The patrol said while there is presently no indication any child porn was stored on the man's work computer, it has been seized for examination.

Corrections Department spokesman Andrew Garber says Boone has been placed on administrative leave while the investigation proceeds. The spokesman says Boone has been with the agency since April 2003 and has worked with adult offenders in his community corrections role. Garber referred other questions to the State Patrol.

The patrol says Boone is also a reserve police officer for the city of Tenino. The Tenino Police Department did not immediately return a call for comment late Tuesday.

It was not known whether Boone had a lawyer.
