A Wyoming man is facing child pornography charges after an investigation into his online activity. The Michigan State Police Computer Crimes Unit and Internet Crimes Against Children performed the investigation into 51-year-old Rodney Buchanan.
Officers executed a search warrant at Buchanan's home Wednesday July 12, 2017. They say evidence was found leading to Buchanan's arrest.
Michigan State Police say Buchanan is a habitual offender. On July 14, he was arraigned on five charges. They include child sexually abusive material distribution, child sexually abusive activity, child sexually abusive material possession and using a computer to commit a crime.
The MSP Computer Crimes Unit encourages parents to speak to their children about the safe use of the internet. Anyone with information regarding possible child sexual exploitation, is asked to report it to the CyberTipline.
