Yahoo tip leads police to man distributing indecent pictures of children in Broken Arrow

//

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. – Today, 51-year-old Christopher Edward Kuhn was arrested by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit on child pornography charges.

The case was assigned to the OSBI ICAC Unit after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) forwarded a cyber tip that they received from Yahoo. Yahoo reported to NCMEC that a user with an Oklahoma IP address emailed numerous videos that depicted child sexual abuse. After a forensic evaluation of evidence, additional sexually graphic videos of children were located in Kuhn’s email account.

Today, the Broken Arrow Tactical Team, Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office and OSBI ICAC agents served a search warrant at Kuhn’s residence where he was taken into custody without incident.

He was booked into the Wagoner County Jail and is facing multiple charges including Aggravated Possession of Child Pornography, Distribution of Child Pornography, Violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act, Lewd or Indecent Proposals or Acts to a Child Under the Age of 16, and Solicitation for Child Pornography.
