Robert Leroy Baldwin Arrested for Possession of Child Porn

A 24-year-old Colorado man was arrested in Tool last Friday for possession of child pornography, Henderson County District Attorney R. Scott McKee announced this week.

Robert Leroy Baldwin was found in possession of child pornography videos at a home in the Cedar Creek Shores sub-division. He is currently in Henderson County Jail with bond set at $100,000.

According to information released by the DA’s office, officials received a tip which led to the arrest.

Early Friday morning, Sgt. Rick Simmons of the Tool Police Department received information about Baldwin. Simmons contacted DA Investigator Jody Miller, who along with Assistant DA Bridget Bateman, prepared a search warrant for the home located on Ridgewood Drive. The warrant was signed by 392nd District Judge Carter Tarrance.

Simmons, along with TPD officer Tonie Nichols, Cpl. Raymond Wennerstorm, and McKee executed the warrant around 8:30 p.m. Friday. Baldwin was taken into custody without incident.

During a search of the home, DVDs containing child pornography were found.

McKee said his office will continue to investigate the case and will seek assistance from the FBI to try and find the source of the videos.
