On Tuesday, members with the Kirksville Regional Computer Crimes Unit and the Linn County Sheriffâ??s Office arrested Clinton Montalbetti, 23, at the Linn County Sheriffâ??s Office. Montalbetti was wanted on an outstanding warrant for possession of child pornography.
The warrant was issued from Putnam County, Mo. after images of suspected child pornography were located on a flash drive used by Montalbetti while he had been employed as a police officer with the Unionville Police Department in late 2013.
Also on Tuesday, detectives with the Kirksville Police Department and KRCCU, members of the Linn County Sheriffâ??s Office and members of the Missouri Highway Patrol executed a search warrant at Montalbettiâ??s residence outside of Brookfield, Mo. Items were collected during that search.
Montalbetti is currently being held on a $10,000 cash only bond. The investigation continues with the possibility of additional charges.
Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact their local law enforcement or the KRCCU directly at (660) 785-6945.
