Former City Clerk Arrested For Rape After 9 Month Child Porn Investigation

The former City Clerk for Yreka, who had previously been charged with child pornography possession, has been arrested for rape. 39-year-old Arthur Franklin Timothy Boyd was arrested on a warrant Friday by Mt. Shasta Police following a 9 month investigation. Boyd had been arrested in April at his Yreka home after hundreds of child pornography images were reportedly found on his computer, some of which may depict abuse done by him against local children. The Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force had alerted Mount Shasta Police after a forensic audit revealed about 200 photographs showing children of various ages engaged in sexual activity. Boyd was apparently out on bail prior to his latest arrest on Friday. Arthur Boyd is a longtime Siskiyou County resident who was in public works before recently being appointed as City Clerk for Yreka. He also was a longtime award-winning Cub Scout leader in Siskiyou County. Police say Boyd may have victimized children whose abuse has not yet been reported. Mount Shasta Police can be reached at 926-7540.
