Raymond man charged with possessing child pornography after police seize hard drive
BRENTWOOD — A search prompted by reports of child pornography on a smartphone led police to a Raymond home where they say they found a computer hard drive with illegal videos hidden on top of an air duct in the basement.
According to the Union Leader, the videos involve girls as young as 8 years old being abused by adult men and one also involved two boys ages 9 and 11.
Police arrested Wayne Osborne, 35, of 42 Deerfield Road, and charged him with eight counts of possession of child sex abuse images.
Raymond police say they worked with detectives from the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force after receiving information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that set off the investigation.
Police learned that Osborne’s smartphone was being used to upload child pornography, according to Raymond police Lt. Richard Labell.
Osborne was arraigned and subsequently released with electronic monitoring and an order not to use any smart phone or computer device while out on bail.
