According to the arrest warrant, during an investigation into the devices of 50-year-old Michael Sagues — who had already been arrested in connection to the secret recording of his neighbors — police discovered two laptops containing numerous images of child pornography.

Police say the computers containing the images — including one child younger than 10 — were identifiable to Sagues because they also contained personal photos of Sagues, his medical records and résumés. The child images and files were also connected to sites and companies known by detectives to distribute child pornography.

Once arrested, Sagues will face third degree felony charges of possession of child pornography.
