Officers obtained a search warrant for the computer and Shay's home. According to Dossett, detectives discovered several printed images of child pornography at Shay's home. He was arrested a short time later.
"Quite a bit of it is actually printed out," Dossett said. "Child porn can be placed on other things, so we have to seize all those kinds of media and bring them back to the station."
