Man arrested for possesion of child pornography

A man was arrested on Wednesday for possession of child pornography, according to the Milton Police Department.

Kendall L. Bowen was charged with 12 counts of possession of child pornography after a search warrant was executed on Wednesday, according to police.

Numerous electronic devices, including a laptop in use at the time the warrant was executed, were seized and taken from the house, according to police. In addition to the child pornographic images found on the laptop, a preliminary search of one USB storage device recovered from the house yielded images of obvious child pornography, according to authorities.

"The investigation is ongoing and we will update the community as new information is available," said Milton Police Chief Rich Austin. "It's through partnerships with organizations like the NCMEC that local law enforcement are better positioned to protect and serve some of our most vulnerable residents, our children." 

Milton Police continue the investigation and anticipate additional charges will be filed.
