NY Best Buy Technician Finds Child Porn on Laptop Brought for Repair

A 61-year-old man was arrested after he brought his laptop to a Best Buy and a technician found "very disturbing" sexually explicit photographs of young girls on the computer, authorities said.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said Wednesday that the Queens man brought the computer to the Best Buy in Long Island City on March 26, and a technician began working on it April 1.

When the tech booted up the computer, he saw a slideshow of young girls in sexual poses and engaging in sex acts with adult men, the DA said.

Brown said detectives went to the man's home and he admitted he had been exchanging child pornography for about five years.

He is charged with 15 counts of possession of a sexual performance by a child.
