A 47-year-old Menlo Park man was arrested Monday after his wife contacted the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office because she believed he possessed child pornography, sheriff's officials said.

Matthew Coda was arrested at about 7 p.m. Monday as he stepped off a plane at San Francisco International Airport and was booked into county jail on suspicion of possession of child pornography.

Coda's wife contacted the sheriff's office in September, prompting an investigation that found more than 3,000 images of child pornography on his computer, according to the sheriff's office.

The case remains under investigation and anyone with information about it is encouraged to contact sheriff's Detective Gaby Chaghouri at (650) 259-2314 or gchaghouri@smcgov.org. People can also call the sheriff's anonymous tip line at (800) 547-2700.
