Back in mid-October, police said a computer connected to a file-sharing network was matched to a Kingston IP address, and what police believed to be child pornography files were captured from the computer.

On Nov. 19, Kingston police received authority from a judge to identify the subscriber of the internet service and found that a Kingston address was listed.

On Dec. 5, police executed a search warrant at the subscriber’s home and police say several digital and storage devices were seized, on which police found files believed to be child pornography.
