Posted by Warren Krech on October 30, 2013

The work of Boone County investigators helps Jefferson City Police arrest a man suspected of promoting child pornography.

Officers arrested 27-year-old Johnathan Cox of Jefferson City at a home on Case Avenue Tuesday morning. The Boone County Cyber Crimes Task Force says they’ve been on the case since August, when an investigator downloaded child porn through a file sharing program. Follow-up work pinpointed the home network the images came from.

Jefferson City Police seized a computer and other electronics from the home during their search, and took Cox to the Cole County Jail, where he waits for formal charges.
