Man Arrested in Sequim for Possessing Sexually Explicit Depictions of Minors


    On 2/17/2017 at approximately 12:30 PM Sequim Police arrested
    Charles G. Landrum for possession of sexually explicit depictions of
    a minor.  Landrum is a transient 53 years-old male, who currently
    lives in his vehicle.   

    The investigation started on 12/13/2016 when the Sequim Police
    Department was provided a tip from the Port Angeles Police
    Department.  The tip was initially provided to The Port
    Angeles Police Department by the National Center for Missing
    and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and provided details that
    Landrum was viewing/uploading child pornography.  


    Investigators seized Landrum’s cell phones and when they were
    examined under the authority of a search warrant, evidence
    of child pornography was found.  The images/depictions located on
    Landrum’s cell phone were of unknown prepubescent females
    engaged in sexually explicit behavior.

 

    Investigators have found no evidence that any of the minors
    depicted in these images are of local victims, and believe that
    they are most likely of eastern European origin. The police
    department routinely works with NCMEC, as well as other local
    and federal agencies to aggressively investigate all crimes against
    children.

 

    Landrum was booked into the Clallam County Correctional
    Facility for Possession of depictions of minor engaged in
    sexually explicit conduct (RCW 9.68A.070).
