ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Rochester man was charged Friday after a search warrant turned up hundreds of child pornography images on his computer.

According to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office, the images were discovered at a home on the 4100 block of Manor View Drive Northwest. An ongoing investigation by Internet Crimes Against Children led officers to the house where they found 795 images on Vandenhemel's computer.

He's due back in court on July 3.
