Northern Nevada man arrested on child porn counts

RENO — A 54-year-old Spanish Springs man has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting and using minors to make pornography in a series of incidents investigators say stretched over more than a decade.

Washoe County sheriff's deputies say they arrested Craig Steven Blodgett on Tuesday.

Detectives say they've identified three alleged victims so far and the investigation is continuing.

Blodgett was booked on 10 different counts, including sexual assault of a child under 14, possession of child pornography, use of a minor to produce pornography and promotion of sexual performance of a minor.

Investigators say the alleged incidents began in 2000 and continued into this year.

Detectives are trying to find more victims. Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff's office at 775-328-3320 or Secret Witness at 775-322-4900.
