25-year-old Devin Balmer was booked into the Bingham County Jail. He is alleged to have possessed sexually exploitative material.
The Blackfoot City Police Department, Bingham County Sheriff’s Office, Pocatello Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations all assisted the ICAC Unit with the arrest.
