Smith had been using his personal laptop computer to access the library's free Wi-Fi service and download child pornography files. The Sheriff's Office said that Smith had been regularly using the library's Wi-Fi to download the files since late April.

A search warrant was served at a homeless encampment on Santa Clara Avenue where Smith had been staying. Detectives say they found more evidence during the search.

Smith was booked into the Fresno County Jail on charges of possession of child pornography.
