Milford police make child porn bust



MILFORD—A 17-year-old city teen was arrested on a warrant Wednesday for uploading and possessing 200 images of child pornography into a Facebook account, police said Thursday.
Police spokesman Lt. Vaughan Dumas wrote in a department press release Thursday that the department’s Computer Crimes Unit received a cyber-tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that a person from Milford uploaded more than 200 images of child pornography into a Facebook account, police said. 

The investigation led to a city address where a search and seizure warrant was executed, police said. Police seized a computer from the residence and after a forensic review an excess of 100 images and videos of child pornography were found, police said.

The 17-year-old teen, whose name was not provided by police because of the juvenile’s age, was connected to this upload and to Facebook through his email address and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
The teen was charged with first-degree possession of child pornography, and possession of transmitting child pornography by a minor. The teen was released on $1,000 bond and is due to appear in Superior Court May 16.
