A man who ran for sheriff of Outagamie County has been arrested after investigators say they found pornographic images of children ranging from about one to 10 years old.

Alexander Bebris, 49, of Neenah, was taken into custody Wednesday by the Winnebago County Sheriff's Office.

According to the U.S. Attorneys Office, Facebook notified the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that a user sent two pictures of fully naked children to other users via Facebook Messenger.

The sheriff's office and Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation served a search warrant at a home in Fox Crossing on Wednesday morning. On a computer in Bebris' bedroom they found pictures of sexual acts being committed against young girls and boys.

Bebris was taken into custody on multiple counts of Possession of Child Pornography, according to the Sheriff's Office.

He was taken to the Winnebago County Jail.

Bebris ran for sheriff of Outagamie County during the August 2018 election, ultimately losing to Clint Kriewaldt.

His campaign website bills him as a "Husband. Father. Conservative. Business Owner." It says he has more than 30 years experience in public safety.

The website states that Bebris retired from law enforcement in 2017 and moved to the Fox Valley. He founded Public Safety Strategies in Grand Chute, which offers public safety consulting.

Bebris' website states that he's worked with the Adams County Sheriff's Office, Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, the Town of Menasha (now Fox Crossing) and the city of Milwaukee. He also served as director of Public Safety for the city of Oakwood, Ohio.
