MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A St. Louis County Public Works employee was arrested Monday for allegedly possessing child porn, the county sheriff’s office says.

Bruce Hosking, 63, of Cloquet, was arrested at his workplace just before 7:30 a.m. by sheriff’s office deputies and members of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Authorities then executed a search warrant at his home.

On Monday night, authorities held Hosking at the county jail pending formal charges and a court appearance for five felony counts of child porn possession.

Cloquet is located about 20 miles west of Duluth.

The investigation is still on-going.
