Sheriff's Department seeks Columbia man wanted for child pornography charges

COLUMBIA — Law enforcement are looking for an 18-year-old man wanted on suspicion of possessing and distributing child pornography who they believe may have left the country.

The Boone County Cyber Crimes Task Force — a group that includes the Boone County Sheriff’s Department, the FBI and works with several area police departments — seized several computers from Diego Camargo-Wasserman's residence with about 26 pornographic videos including children “believed to be as young as three,” according to a task force news release.

A federal grand jury indicted Camargo-Wasserman of 6390 S. Sabine Drive in September on child pornography charges.

Police believe Camargo-Wasserman might have left the state and possibly gone to Mexico, according to the release.

In addition to the indictment, Camargo-Wasserman has active arrest warrants for failing to appear in Boone County Circuit Court for unrelated charges including first-degree robbery, second-degree burglary and possession of a controlled substance, according to the release.

Anyone with information regarding the location of the suspect is urged to contact the Boone County Sheriff’s Department, the Cyber Crime Task Force, CrimeStoppers or the local FBI Office.
