Police: Edmond officers assist in porn arrest

OKLA. CITY — An investigation initiated by an Edmond officer resulted in the arrest of a metro man on a distribution of child pornography complaint, police said.

Thursday morning, Jenny Monroe, spokeswoman for the Edmond Police Department, said working through the Oklahoma Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Edmond Police Detective Mark Oak initiated an investigation into the distribution of child pornography over the Internet.

Monroe said the investigation continues to see if any local children are depicted in any of the images.

Wednesday morning, task force members from the Edmond Police Department, Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office and OSBI Internet Crimes and Computer Crimes units with assistance from the Oklahoma City Police Department served a search warrant in the 3000 block of Southwest 40th in Oklahoma City, Monroe said.

On-scene images of child pornography were found in the suspect’s computer, Monroe said. Several computer items seized at the scene are at the Edmond departments’s computer crimes lab for a full forensic examination, Monroe said.

In an affidavit of probable cause filed Wednesday by Oak in Oklahoma County District Court, the detective stated the pornographic images were located on a file sharing network.

Oak stated he sent AT&T a court order requesting subscriber information for the customer assigned the computer's Internet Protocol address. Oak stated AT&T responded and the subscriber was linked to the home on Southwest 40th Street in Oklahoma City.

An Internet Protocol address is an identifier for a computer device on an Internet network. IP address space is managed by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority.

The suspect purportedly admitted he had a problem with child porn and said the images would be found on the two storage devices, Oak stated.

During questioning, the defendant purportedly admitted he has been downloading child porn files via the Internet for many years, Oak stated. He said he did seek counseling services for his problem but could not find a counselor who could help, Oak stated.

The suspect purportedly admitted accessing the files via the Internet by using “torrents,” and using BitComet as his file sharing program, Oak stated. The suspect reportedly admitted to being interested in images consistent with those he downloaded from the IP address on Nov. 8 and Nov. 9, Oak stated.

“Torrents,” also known as “bittorrents,” are pointer files that help users locate dozens of other personal computers. Users connect to the personal computers with software such as BitComet enabling them to read .torrent files.

Oak stated he was able to connect with the suspect’s computer and download 1,065 images depicting young girls between ages 8-12 posing in various positions and stages of undress. Based on training and experience, Oak stated, he determined at least 385 were child pornography.

Jessie Cleve Burns III, 36, a resident at the home, was arrested on complaints of aggravated possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography and on a complaint of violating the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act, Oak stated.

Thursday morning, Burns was incarcerated in the Oklahoma County jail and was being held on $32,000 bond, according to jail records.
