LYNDEN, Wash. – A former Lynden Police Officer was arrested Friday. Investigators say he had child pornography on his city-owned cell phone while he was with the department.

Donald Glunt, 57, of Lynden was arrested and booked into the Skagit County Jail.

Glunt very recently resigned from the police department.

Washington State Patrol Lieutenant Ron Mead said Lynden Police Officers discovered images on Glunt’s cell phone. Police Chief Jack Foster asked the State Patrol to take over the investigation, according to Mead.

Mead said Glunt was trading images with a 16 year-old girl in Texas. Police in Texas interviewed the girl.

Glunt faces on charges of Dealing and Possession of Depictions of Minors Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct and Viewing of Depictions of a Minor Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct. Mead says additional charges are possible.
