“Toxic” Child Porn Found In Four Utah Counties

Print

Rural Utah may not sound like a child pornography center, but a state task force if finding lots of it. The Salt Lake Tribune reports police armed with a search warrant kicking in the front door of a Coalville, Ut., couple looking for traces of what computer forensics had revealed: the couple’s connection to child pornography. It was day two of a five-day operation sponsored by the Utah Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that resulted in serving 13 search warrants and four arrest warrants in four counties.

The operation took months of planning and the cooperation of many public safety agencies, said Capt. Rhett McQuiston of the task force, an arm of the Attorney General’s Office. Evidence gathered at the Coalville home included sex videotapes, photos of a naked baby in positions police found concerning, adult toys and other items. The reality of busting offenders who are in close proximity to children can be rough for police to swallow, McQuiston said. Often family members aren’t aware their loved one is involved with child pornography until the team arrives at their front door. “This stuff is very toxic,” McQuiston said of material seized.
