The Weekly Vista - - News - From Staff Re­ports

A man re­sid­ing in Iowa has been ar­rested on child pornog­ra­phy charges in Bella Vista.

Jay Lloyd Har­ris, 45, was ar­rested in Sac City, Iowa, in con­nec­tion with pos­ses­sion of child pornog­ra­phy, a class C felony.

On April 7, Bella Vista po­lice took a re­port of ter­ror­is­tic threats, said Lt. Barb Shrum. Har­ris was ar­rested by Bella Vista po­lice for ter­ror­is­tic threat­en­ing and third de­gree as­sault, both mis­de­meanors. Dur­ing that in­ves­ti­ga­tion, a vic­tim dis­closed that there had been sus­pected child pornog­ra­phy lo­cated on a com­puter Har­ris owned.

Shrum ob­tained a search war­rant for the home, and later for the elec­tron­ics seized in the search, and re­cently re­ceived the foren­sic in­for­ma­tion back from In­ter­net Crimes Against Chil­dren.

Shrum said ICAC found “1,181 unique il­le­gal child abuse images on two lap­tops and an ex­ter­nal hard drive.”

A war­rant was is­sued for Har­ris’ ar­rest, who had re­lo­cated to Sac City, Iowa, af­ter his April ar­rest. Af­ter work­ing with local of­fi­cials there, Har­ris was ar­rested and is await­ing ex­tra­di­tion. He was charged with dis­tribut­ing, pos­sess­ing or view­ing mat­ter de­pict­ing sex­u­ally ex­plicit con­duct in­volv­ing a child.
