On September 20, a detective with the Baltimore County Police Department Crimes Against Children Unit was conducting a check of the Internet for persons sharing child pornography. During this investigation, the detective identified a source that was sharing pornographic images of children.

Further investigation indicated that this source was located in a home in the 5900 block of Queen Anne Street 21207. Detectives served a search and seizure warrant on that home and recovered a desktop computer and external hard drive that contained images of child pornography.

The investigation has indicated that 34-year-old Roger W. Woods of the home in the 5900 block of Queen Anne Street 21207 was responsible for the images on the computer devices and that he knowingly and willfully possessed and distributed child pornography.

When detectives arrested Woods, they recovered a tablet computer and cell phone from his car. These items have not yet been examined.

Roger W. Woods was found to be employed in a position for a government contractor that required top secret security clearance. His employer has been notified of the arrest.

At this time, there is no evidence that Roger W. Woods has had any sexual contact with children.

Roger W. Woods has been charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. He is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $350,000 bail.
