Investigators jailed a 54-year-old man on child pornography charges after he bought illicit videos of child pornography during an undercover mail sting, authorities said in a release.
A detective from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service posed as a commercial DVD retailer and found William J. Zimmerman through a list of people who may have bought similar illegal porn in the past, according to a news release.
The inspector sent Zimmerman a letter — on fictitious company letterhead — and offered child porn via mail order.
Zimmerman, of the 1200 block of 51st Avenue East, was arrested after an undercover agent delivered four DVDs on Friday. After being interrogated, Zimmerman reportedly acknowledged that he intended to buy child porn and had done so other times, according to the release.
He is being held on four felony counts.
