Police said search warrants were obtained for his residence under the suspicion he was in possession of child pornography.

Edmonds was arraigned Wednesday on six counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct with a person under 13 and six counts of child sexually abusive material.

He is expected to return to court March 19.
