Police have arrested a professional photographer in Greenwood after his daughter said she found photos of naked children on his computer.

John Spurr, 64, faces three counts of child exploitation.

Officers confiscated Spurr's computer this week after arresting him at his home on Pushville Road. That's where he also ran a photography business, called Evergreen Photographic Illustration and Design.

Spurr's daughter called police after she said she discovered nude photos of her 3-year-old son and other young children on the computer.

Spurr admitted to taking the photo of his grandson with his cell phone and downloading other inappropriate images online, according to authorities.

At last check, detectives were still searching Spurr's computer and collecting more evidence.
