      Man takes computer to repair shop, arrested for child porn

      A Columbia man was arrested on suspicion of child pornography possession.

      A Columbia man was arrested on suspicion of child pornography possession.

      Monday morning, the Boone County Sheriff's Department Cyber Crimes Task Force arrested 67-year-old John S. Littell.

      Detectives said the investigation began a little more than a week ago when Littell took his computer to a repair business.

      That's when a technician reported discovering child porn.

      Detectives said the suspect's hard drive had more than 25 thousand pornographic photos of teens, many believed to be minors and some as young as 8 years old.

      Additional child porn was discovered on Monday when his apartment on Hyde Park was searched.

      Littell is in Boone County Jail pending formal charges
