Brookfield man arrested after sending explicit photos of child to federal agent


BROOKFIELD — A Brookfield man was arrested after he was caught sending child pornography to a federal agent earlier this month using a prepaid cell phone.

Andrew McKenzie, of Brookfield, was arrested on charges of possession and transportation of child pornography and sexual exploitation of children, according to The Union Leader.

Federal agents began investigating McKenzie in the beginning of October when he initiated a private conversation with an undercover investigator on KiK, a social media app, the UL reports.

McKenzie allegedly sent sexually explicit photos of a child to the undercover agent during the conversation. Investigators were able to identify the victim in the photo the next day.

When confronted on Oct. 5 at his job, McKenzie admitted to taking the photos and and sending them to at least four different people on KiK. McKenzie claimed that he did nothing wrong by taking the photos.

McKenzie is currently being held without bail pending his next court hearing on Nov. 14.
