COLUMBIA — A 46-year-old Columbia man was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of possession of child pornography, said Detective Tracy Perkins of the Boone County Sheriff's Department's Cyber Crimes Task Force.
Joseph Kreiser was arrested at 9 a.m. on one count of possession of child pornography, according to a Sheriff's Department news release.
In February, a Sheriff’s Department Cyber Crimes Task Force investigator traced a computer that was offering child pornography through file sharing to a Columbia residence, Perkins said.
After obtaining a search warrant, investigators searched Kreiser’s residence on March 2 and seized items containing more than 60 images of children, Perkins said. A forensic examination of the computer equipment linked Kreiser to the images, she said.
Kreiser was being held at Boone County Jail as of Friday afternoon on a $10,000 bond, Perkins said.
