SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. -- A Siloam Springs man was arrested December 29 for the possession and distribution of child pornography.  

Travis Allen, a 25-year-old man from Siloam Springs, was using the Grindr mobile application to transmit naked photos of young boys.  Grindr is a social networking app used to connect gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people, according to its website.

Officers acquired a search warrant for Allen's phone, and were able to determine that he had a video of two teenaged males having sex.  

Allen was arrested for distributing, viewing, or possessing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child. 

Allen is being held on a $10,000 bond.
