Minot man arrested for child porn

James Paul Dugas III, 25, who lives on Fifth Street Southwest, was arrested by Minot police for possession of certain materials prohibited – child pornography. He is being held in the Ward County Jail on $5,000 bond.

The arrest was made through a joint investigation of Minot police and the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigations.

No warrant was obtained for the search of Dugas’ home that resulted in his arrest, according to Det. Dave Goodman of the MPD. Instead, investigators knocked on the door of the home and obtained consent for the search.

An affidavit for further information on the case was unavailable Thursday.
