Bloomington man charged with possession of child sexual abuse material



A 30-year-old Bloomington man was arrested Friday on 10 counts of possession of child pornography after police allegedly found several hundred images on his computer, Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo said.

Pedigo said the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children tipped off BPD that Allen Montgomery was in possession of child pornography. On Sept. 30, BPD searched his home and found an illegal handgun and methamphetamine, for which he was booked into jail Tuesday, but no pornography. 

BPD submitted a search warrant to Google on Oct. 2 and content returned from Montgomery’s drive allegedly had several hundred pornographic images of children, Pedigo said.
