Holts Summit man arrested for child porn

A 45 year old Holts Summit man was arrested Wednesday on child pornography charges.

Authorities said 45 year old Dale Dietsch of 320 North Summit Drive, Lot 174, was arrested for possession of child pornography and first-degree promoting child pornography.

This arrest is the result of a joint investigation between the Boone County Sheriff’s Department Cyber Crimes Task Force, the Callaway County Sheriff’s Department and the Holts Summit Police Department.

The investigation began in late January when a detective with the task force located a home computer network believed to be in the mid-Missouri area offering to share child pornography through a file sharing program.

Between late January and mid-February the detective downloaded both still images and movies of child pornography from the suspected computer.

During this investigation the exact location of the home network was identified and on Wednesday investigators served a search warrant at the Dietsch’s residence.

A computer and numerous other electronic devices were seized and child pornography was found on the computer.
