BOSTON — Police say a Utah man who was viewing child pornography on a Delta flight from Salt Lake City to Boston has been arrested.
Massachusetts State Police say 47-year-old Grant Smith, of Cottonwood Heights, Utah, was sitting in first class Saturday afternoon when a fellow passenger saw the pornographic images on Smith’s laptop and alerted the flight crew.
When the plane landed at Boston Logan International Airport just after 4 p.m., troopers interviewed Smith and subsequently arrested him.
He has been charged with possession of child pornography, and police say additional charges could follow. His bail is set at $15,000, and he’s scheduled to be arraigned Monday.
Smith was in police custody Saturday night and couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
Delta Air Lines Inc. is based in Atlanta.
