Cambria man arrested for child pornography
Christopher John Kehoe, 49, of Cambria was booked Wednesday for possession and distribution of child pornography and possession of a controlled substance for sale.
At 7:06 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 7, detectives with the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Sexual Assault Unit, Sheriff’s Narcotics Unit, and Sheriff’s Gang Task Force served a search warrant at Kehoe’s home located at 2555 Wilcombe Road in Cambria.
Detectives had received information that child pornography was being downloaded and distributed at the location. Detectives searched the residence and located a computer containing child pornography including more than 600 images of pubescent children engaged in sexual acts.
There is no evidence the manufacturing of child pornography was being conducted at the residence. The images appear to have been downloaded from the internet and then distributed. Additional computers and digital media were seized from the residence and will be forensically analyzed for child pornography.
Detectives also discovered approximately six ounces of methamphetamine at the house along with evidence of narcotic sales. Detectives arrested Kehoe for two counts of possession and distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of a controlled substance for sale. Kehoe was taken into custody without incident and was booked into County Jail.
