ST. CLOUD - A Monticello man has been charged with four counts of possessing child pornography after leaving a flash drive at the St. Cloud Library that had pornographic images and his resume on it.

41-year-old Andy Curtis made his first appearance in Stearns County District Court this week.

According to the criminal complaint, a library supervisor called police in November after finding the images while cleaning information from the flash drive from the lost and found bin. It's the practice of the library to reuse unclaimed flash drives left in the lost and found by removing all data and then lending them to library patrons.

The drive was found to contain over 500 images and 35 videos with naked male children engaging in sexual activity.

The flash drive also had two resumes, one under the name of Curtis, a photo of a naked Curtis, and non-pornographic photos of his family.

When interviewed by law enforcement, Curtis admitted he was missing a flash drive with his resume and some photos that he transferred from his laptop. He said he had been to the St. Cloud Library a year ago, but didn't realize he left his flash drive there.

Curtis eventually admitted he was the naked man in the photo and that he downloaded child pornography from the internet onto his cell phone and then onto the flash drive.

The files containing suspected child porn were later examined by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and 134 images and four videos were confirmed to contain depictions of sexual abuse of children previously identified by law enforcement for other investigations.
