Columbia Man Arrested for Possession of Child Pornography

A Columbia man is facing charges of child pornography after an arrest yesterday (Thursday) by the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.

60 year old Gary Mark Todd was identified as the suspect after a Cyber Crimes Task Force investigator for the Boone County Sheriff’s Office received a Cyber Tip from an Electronic Service Provider.

The tip reported over 1,000 images of child pornography located on an account belonging to Todd.

A search warrant was served at the man’s Columbia address and multiple devices were seized, resulting in the recovery of additional images of child sexual abuse material depicting children as young as 4 years old.

Todd is currently being held in the Boone County Jail and has a court date scheduled for this Friday afternoon at 1.
