FROM A WWPD PRESS RELEASE:
A joint investigation with the College Place Police Department and the Computer Forensics Detective of the Walla Walla Police Department led to the arrest this morning of David N. Polk, 57, 427 SE 8th, College Place, for 5 counts of Distributing Child Pornography 2nd Degree and 4 counts of Possession of Child Pornography 2nd Degree. All of the charges are felonies.
The arrest was the culmination of a 6 month investigation after information was received that Polk had digital photos of nude teenage girls, ages 14-17, and that those photos were being transmitted electronically. The investigation required the forensic search of numerous storage devices seized during the execution of a search warrant at Polk’s residence and thousands of digital images stored on those devices.
Polk is one of the moderators of the Facebook site Walla Walla Sweet Onion Burger.
