BOULDER, Colo. (WTVO) — A man has been charged with possessing hundreds of photos and videos of violent child pornography after his iPhone was found on a public bus.
Federal prosecutors say 29-year-old Wesley Gilreath, of Boulder, had images “depicting the sexual abuse and/or torture of infants and/or toddlers” on his phone, according to FBI Agent Justin Stern.
KCNC-TV reported that Gilreath’s phone also contained web searches for violent child pornography and a search for a book about gaining children’s trust.
A U.S. Magistrate Judge said investigators found Gilreath had “numerous white supremacist documents and paraphernalia.”
Gilreath is accused of posting something called the “Montana Hunting Guide” online, which contained the addresses of mosques and synagogues.
U.S. Attorney Jason Dunn said in a statement that Gilreath is being investigated in connection to other possible crimes, and that authorities will use every available tool to prosecute him.
