Thief turns in stolen computer with child porn on it.

http://www.news9.com/Global/story.asp?S=13607666

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City police said a thief had a 'change of heart' and turned in some stolen goods so officers could arrest a child porn suspect.

Lisa Flores said she moved into the area of N.W. 97th Street and Western Avenue to get away from crime in her previous neighborhoods.

"I like it because there's a park right here and the school is right here," said Flores. "It's a quiet area."

A lot of the residents in this area say the neighborhood is family-friendly, but lurking in the shadows of a children's playground at a city park sits a home heavily guarded by bushes and branches.

"It looks like a mess," said neighbor Raymond Hutchinson.

Hutchinson and many others would like to see it cleaned up, but behind all that 'mess' is an eyesore littered with latex gloves and broken glass. It's a home recently broken into. Police say whoever committed the crime took off with the homeowner's laptop and that's where the story takes an interesting turn.

Police say the thief took the laptop home and found child porn on it. Seeing that, the thief gave the laptop to a friend so he could give it to police.

"There's the old saying there's no honor among thieves, but in this case it was actually a thief who found the items on the computer and made sure it got into the hands of police so that police could know about this person," said Oklahoma City Police MSgt. Gary Knight.

"That person" is Scott Edward Hinds. Using a search warrant, police searched the 45-year-old's home. Inside they found marijuana, guns and surveillance cameras.

Neighbors say they saw police seize several computers from the home.

Hinds is described as a quiet, secluded man who dabbles in satanic rituals. Several stones carved as human skulls are in Hinds' yard. Neighbors say inside are "voo-doo" items and an old, used coffin.

Animal control has seized Hinds' two dogs and a calf he kept in the backyard. As of 10:00 p.m. Thursday, Hinds was still listed in the Oklahoma County jail on a $35,000 bond.

He's facing two charges of possessing juvenile porn, one charge of possessing a firearm in the commission of a felony, one charge of using surveillance cameras to help facilitate a crime and three charges related to the weed he was growing inside his home.

The unidentified thief that sparked all this has not been arrested. Police say that part of the investigation is still on-going and they will be talking with him in the near future.
I have a question. Who the hell is Lisa Flores, and what role does she have in this case?

From what I read, I think she is one of the nosey neighbors who thrust herself into the story, and offerd an opinion.

If the "last modified on" date of the file is from before the theft, you know the thief didn't do it.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go modify some files and report my computer as stolen. In reverse order.

Just saying, don't police generally drive around with the same stuff? Why inject this into the news story, when clearly guns and surveillance items are legal. Ok marijuana, but how much? I'd guess an amount that says I'm a user and nothing else.

It's easy enough to set the date back on your PC, download the kiddie porn, then re-set the date.

Judging by the tone of the story, it doesn't sound like the neighbors like this guy much. Unless they find illegal images on his other computers, one could suggest a frame up. If he is a sicko, then hopefully they'll find what they need to close the case.

I would think this guy has a pretty good defense given the source of the computer

Re: Thief turns in stolen computer with child porn on it.

Why can't the police just mind their own business?

Child porn is a victimless crime. Except for the children, of course.

Re: Thief turns in stolen computer with child porn on it.

Would this even be admissible in court? Maybe I've watched too many lawyer dramas, but I can almost frame the objection myself.

Maybe Lisa Flores could shed some light on the subject.

Re: Thief turns in stolen computer with child porn on it.

I would like to know the differences between juvenile and child pornography. And was this guy producing or just distributing/disseminating it? While it may be possible that he is being framed and might get off just having the charges brought upon him should make him a social pariah. And if he is guilty? Just send him to Oz.
Edited piranha to pariah. Thanks for that one Mrs. Danger.

A quiet man that dabbles in Satanic rituals. That just sounds funny.

N.W. 97th and Western isn't a bad area. I might have to make my way up there and speak to this miss Lisa Flores.

Re: Thief turns in stolen computer with child porn on it.

Unless I'm misunderstanding the charges..."He's facing two charges of possessing juvenile porn"...means they only found two pictures which met those guidelines. They must have a lot of free time on their hands out there.
