BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

A Port Royal man is in jail Sunday morning after deputies say he downloaded child porn. 

51-year-old Roger Elliott was arrested on Saturday after investigators served a search warrant obtained for his residence at 21 Mariners Court and discovered an illegal browser history.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office first received a lead about this case from the South Carolina Attorney General's Office Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) initiative of child pornography being downloaded from a Port Royal residence. Further investigation narrowed it to Elliott's home.

Elliot is facing two counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, 2nd Degree. 

Investigators are still going through his electronic devices, so he could be facing more charges.

The South Carolina Attorney General's Office will be prosecuting Roger K. Elliott and any other subjects charged as result of this ICAC initiated investigation.
