[ARCHIVED] 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).
