      On Monday, members of the Kirksville Regional Computer Crimes Unit, the Sullivan County Sheriff??s Office and the Milan Police Department executed a search warrant at a residence on Elm Street in Milan. The warrant stemmed from allegations that one of the residents had been engaged in sexually explicit communications through a social media website with a person that was identified as being 13 years old. The resident was actually ??chatting?? with an undercover detective with the KRCCU.Officers made contact with John Johnson, 27, and seized several items including a cell phone and computer used by Johnson. During questioning, Johnson admitted to sending pornographic images of himself to the subject he felt was 13 years old.Johnson was then arrested on an outstanding Sullivan County warrant for possession of child pornography.

The investigation continues and other charges are expected to be filed.Related stories....How The Kirksville Regional Computer Crimes Unit Keeps you Safe in Cyberspace Child porn offenders receive combined 43 years in prison Former Linn County man pleads guilty to federal child porn charges
