Midwest City Man Arrested for Possession of Child Pornography

This morning, January 30, 2013, members of the Oklahoma Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force arrested Freddy Edwards (dob: 12/05/1951) at his residence, 721 Jet Drive, Midwest City, Oklahoma. A Guthrie police officer initiated the investigation into the sharing of child pornography over the Internet. Edwards distributed several images of child pornography to that officer. This morning a search warrant was served at Edwards’ residence by task force officers from the Guthrie Police Department, Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office, Midwest City Police Department, and OSBI ICAC and Computer Crimes Units. An on-scene preview of computer-related items revealed child pornography images. The computer-related items will be sent to the OSBI Computer Crimes Unit for further examination. The investigation will continue to determine if any local children were on the images. Edwards was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on two counts of Possession of Child Pornography and one count of Violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.
