Child porn investigation implicates Millington reserve officer

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A Millington Police reserve officer is being held on suspicion of child porn.

Millington police released the officer after learning of the investigation. 

Shelby County Sheriff's Office said former Millington reserve officer Rickie Friar, 66, is in custody in Russellville, Arkansas.

They plan to extradite him back to Shelby County as soon as possible.

Shelby County deputies said they received credible information linking Friar to the sexual exploitation of children.

With that information, they got a warrant for Friar's arrest.

Around 8 p.m. Monday, Arkansas State Police arrested Friar in Russellville.

Friar was also a former Shelby County Sheriff's Office deputy from 1974-1981.

WMC Action News 5's Kontji Anthony is working to uncover more details about this investigation. She'll have a full report tonight at 5.
