Felony charges are expected to be filed Thursday against a 30-year-old Desert Hot Springs man accused of possessing child pornography.

Robert Earl Adams was arrested Tuesday following an investigation conducted by the Desert Hot Springs Police Department regarding the possession and dissemination of videos depicting sexual exploitation of children, according to Doria Wilms, a public information officer for the city.

Wilms said authorities received a tip in late November regarding the videos and began an investigation.

The investigation led to the arrest of Adams, who was booked into the Byrd Detention Center in Murrieta on suspicion of possession of obscene matter, possession of obscene matter over 600 images and dissemination of obscene matter.

He remains held there on $250,000 bail.

Adams was scheduled to make his initial court appearance on Thursday at the Larson Justice Center in Indio, according to jail records.
