HUMBLE, TEXAS - HUMBLE, TEXAS - An Humble ISD police officer has been charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography.

Jeffrey Warren Clark, 48, had several thousand images of graphic child pornography and child exploitation in his home, according to Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman’s Office.

Precinct 4 deputies searched the home in the 14600 block of Logan Falls Lane Tuesday.

Herman says the investigation began after Clark applied for a job with Precinct 4 and “alarming information” turned up. 

"During our background investigation, some things that were said to some of our investigators that raised red flags and alarms," Hermann said. 

According to court documents, a polygraph examiner conducted a pre-test interview with Clark admitted to looking at pictures of 17-year-old girls on the Internet as many as 10 times in the last year. He also allegedly admitted to having had sex with a 14 and 15 year old girl when he was 18 years old.

The polygraph examiner began the polygraph test and Clark proceeded to deny similar questions when he was asked. All this raised serious concerns for investigators who obtained a search warrant for Clark's Humble home.

Deputies seized multiple pieces of property including a tablet. They found thousands of child porn images.

"In my 31 years, I've never seen anything like this with our agency," Hermann said. "Other agencies may have had it but not us."

Humble ISD sent us this statement:

"An Humble ISD nighttime patrol officer has been charged with possession of child pornography. Nighttime patrol officers do not interact with students on a regular basis. He was hired in July 2015 and on August 2, 2017 he was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. Humble ISD will continue to work with Precinct 4 in this matter."

Clark has bonded out of jail and is due back in court Monday.
