Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents arrested a Russell man at his workplace in Hays Thursday after a federal investigation into child pornography possession. Authorities said Kenneth Herd, 54, was taken into custody on charge of possession and transportation of child pornography.

The arrest followed an indictment handed up against Herd by a federal grand jury. Herd was taken to the Sedgwick County Jail in Wichita and was being held without bond Thursday.
