( Delhi Twp ) - A corrections officer in the Hamilton County Jail was taken to jail on Thursday morning.

A statement from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says 30-year-old Joshua Yeager was arrested following a search of his home in Delhi Township. He's so far charged with a felony count of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor. 

"Our agents seized several electronic devices from the suspect's home while serving the search warrant there this morning," Attorney General DeWine said. He says it's possible that more charges will be filed.

A statement from Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil says Deputy Yeager was hired in 2006 and is currently assigned as a corrections officer. He's been relieved of duty and placed on unpaid leave.
