Logan Police received multiple tips that led to the arrest of a Logan man who allegedly viewed more than 300 explicit images of babies, toddlers and prepubescent children.

Daniel Archibald, 43, was arrested on July 1 following an investigation that started at the Utah Attorney General’s Office with its Internet Crimes Against Children task force.

That agency received two separate tips from Facebook and Twitter in May. Additional investigation linked hundreds of highly sexual images of children to an IP address that was then traced to Archibald.

Then, investigators used that information to do a search of open cases which then led to the third tip, which had been sent to Logan police last year but never fully investigated, according to a probable cause statement filed in conjunction with Archibald’s arrest.

In late June, police obtained a search warrant to search Archibald apartment. Officers seized a cell phone and an iPad that allegedly contained at least 10 pornographic images of children.

During an interview with police, Archibald allegedly admitted to viewing the pornography although he said the youngest victim would be 12 or 13 years old.

Archibald was booked into the Cache County Jail and has been charged with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

He bailed out of jail and is currently living in Rexburg with a family member while his criminal charges are pending.

During this pretrial stage, Archibald is not allowed to possess any device that would allow him to access the internet.

He is scheduled to return to 1st District Court in Logan on Aug. 19.
