On Tuesday, they made their move. and arrested him on charges of child pornography and using a computer to commit a crime. On Thursday, police announced the charges were issued by the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office.

"These types of cases, this could have been going on for a long time. We don't have any indication that he assaulted any children or manufactured pornography, but it could have happened. So we went to put this information out to the public to see if anyone knows anything or to see if there are possible victims out there," Sgt. Lehman said.
