Authorities on Tuesday arrested the president of a state workers union local on suspicion of possessing child pornography and violating his probation as a sex offender. Jaime E. Feliciano, 49, works at the state Insurance Department as a research program specialist, according to public records.

Sacramento County Sheriff's Department spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran said authorities recently received a tip from police in Reno that Feliciano had inappropriate contact with a juvenile there.

Curran said the tip was turned over to the high-tech crime task force, which is led by the Sheriff's Department.

Task force members carried out a compliance check Tuesday at Feliciano's South Natomas home on Rancho Roble Way, where they found thousands of pornographic images of children on his computer, Curran said.

"If a child had any unsupervised contact with him, we would like to know about it," Curran said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Department at (916) 874-5115.

According to the Web site of SEIU Local 1000 District Labor Council 784, Feliciano heads the organization.

The union represents employees at various state agencies including the Department of Insurance, Department of General Services, the California Highway Patrol and Department of Social Services.

According to court records, Feliciano was convicted in 1993 of a lewd or lascivious act with a child under the age of 14 years, which is a felony.
