SBI and sheriff investigating child porn case
The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into allegations that a Denver man distributed child pornography over the Internet, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies and SBI officials have charged Edward Arthur Peck, 47, of 1753 North Highway 16, with two felony counts of second-degree sexual exploit of a minor/distributing material, according to a Wednesday afternoon agency statement.
Sheriff’s detectives and SBI agents said they seized more than one computer and other materials from the suspect’s home during a search Tuesday night.
Peck is being held under a $200,000 secured bond and is set to appear in a Lincoln County courtroom Wednesday.
The SBI is conducting an ongoing investigation into the incident.
