San Luis Obispo man arrested for child porn

March 12, 2015

handcuffSan Luis Obispo police arrested a man Wednesday for having photos of children between the ages of 10 and 17 who were performing sexual acts.

An Arroyo Grande detective provided San Luis Obispo police with information that Christopher Kluck, 57, was in possession of child pornography. The Arroyo Grande detective who provided the information is trained and affiliated with the Central California Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

During the search of a home on the 3900 block of South Higuera, police seized four computers, seven hard drives, as well as some thumb drives belonging to Kluck. A brief search of one of the computers revealed numerous images and videos of child pornography.  Kluck was placed under arrest without incident at his residence.

During preliminary analysis, a forensic computer specialist discovered Kluck possessed tens of thousands of files containing images and videos. It will take several weeks for these files to be viewed to determine if they contain additional child pornography.

Officers booked Kluck  into the San Luis Obispo County Jail for possession of minors involved in sexual conduct. His bail was set at $35,000.

    Cal Coast you failed us this time by printing the PD press release, which is carefully worded to make it seem like this is a cut and dry case. They got the warrant based on information provided by another police agency. What was the basis of that information? A complaint? Internet surveillance?

    So far they located “numerous images and videos of child pornography.” But child pornography is defined not just as lude pictures of minors, but also lude pictures of adults in which they are costumed to appear as minors. Were these pictures merely from an internet cache? Could someone have plugged a USB drive into his computer and copied the images over and then phoned in an anonymous complaint? And it said he has tens and thousands of images and videos in GENERAL, not necessarily even pornography.

    I hope updates follow.

      First of all, it’s not “lude”…it’s “lewd.”

      Secondly, your idea about a conspiracy theory being the reason child pornography
      was found on Mr. Kluck’s computer is just plain bizarre.

      Third, if this is just a copy of the PD’s press release, please provide a link.

        Here is a link to the press release. Every single media outlet ran the story direct from the release, no questions asked. https://local.nixle.com/alert/5375870/

        That being said, as an IT person this concerned me so I did some more research. Based on the information I found, it does not appear that these task forces are merely providing information based on anonymous reports nor generalized internet watching. It appears that they generally get the computer’s IP address information from peer to peer sharing of child pornography in a way that would not put innocent people at risk.

        However, I reached that conclusion based on information, not just assuming that whatever government agencies said was fact, and I don’t think other people should simply accept such information either. There are plenty of reasons to be skeptical.
