A former sheriff’s deputy was arrested at his home in Santa Fe Springs on Wednesday on suspicion of distributing child pornography.

Lorne Reed, 32, was at home with his two children when law enforcement officers from several agencies served a search warrant at the residence, according to a news release from the Los Angeles Police Department.

Reed was arrested without incident for distribution of child pornography, the release stated.

The children were taken also taken into protective custody, according to police.
