Rochester man facing child porn charges

ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man who lives in Northwest Rochester is now facing felony counts involving child porn.

The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office tells us they arrested 29-year-old Anthony Vandenhemel on the 4100 block of Manor View Drive Northwest Thursday morning. Authorities say they were tipped off by the Minneapolis Police Department that a computer in Rochester had images of child porn on it. After looking through the computer, law enforcement say they found nearly 800 images of child pornography. Vandenhemel is facing two felony counts in the matter. “That’s just a start. Those charges will most likely be enhanced there will be more counts in the future after we complete the investigation,” Captain of Investigations at the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office Scott Behrns said.

Officials say they are continuing to look for more images on the computer.
