GRAPEVINE (CBSDFW.COM) – A 17-year veteran of the Grapevine Police Department has been arrested on child pornography charges.

Authorities made the arrest, shortly after raiding the Crowley home of 46 year-old Phillip Woolery.

Former U.S. Attorney Matt Orwig says charges like these are serious, particularly for a member of law enforcement.

“It’s very serious anytime a police officer is arrested.  And this is going to be a very serious offense,” he said.  “Penalties for possession and transfer of child porn are very severe.”

Woolery is now on administrative leave.
