Columbia man arrested for possession of child pornography
COLUMBIA - The Boone County Sherff's Department arrested a man accused of having child pornography Wednesday.
Investigators said they found multiple images at 21-year-old Brandon Deavers' home and seized an electronic device.
The investigation began in July when the Cyber Crimes Task Force received a report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The report said a subject in Columbia uploaded child pornography using a chat room.
The department said an investigator found the account holder's address when child pornography was shared through a Skype chat.
