ASHEBORO, N.C. — An Asheboro man has been arrested on charges related to child pornography. 

According to the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office, Kenneth Ray Smith Jr., 40, was arrested on Friday after detectives discovered “online files available on a file sharing network containing images of child pornography.” 

Deputies say Smith “received and disseminated the material.” 

During a search of Smith’s home in the 2500 block of Wedge Place, deputies said they seized laptop computers, a personal computer and other electronic devices. 

Smith is charged with five counts of felony second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. 

He is being held in the Randolph County Jail under a $25,000 bond. 

Deputies are still investigating the case and ask that anyone with further information would call the sheriff’s office.
