Menlo Park Police said they arrested 77-year-old Menlo Park resident Dennis Davis Terry in connection with an ongoing child pornography case.

In July, the Menlo Park Police Department Investigations Division received a tip from the Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that led them to view Terry as a suspect. Terry was taken into custody Sept. 14 and served with three search warrants that led to the recovery of evidence, police said in a press release.

Dennis Terry's wife, Juliet Terry, denies the allegations against her husband and says he is seeking immediate mental health care.

He was booked into San Mateo County Main Jail on suspicion of felony possession of obscene matter. Police said they are working to identify other individuals involved.
