COLLIN COUNTY - A detention officer in Collin County has been arrested on charges of possessing child pornography.
Members of the Collin County Sheriff’s Office Child Abuse Task Force arrested 52-year-old Keith Michael Duncan on Thursday evening.
Authorities received a tip involving a user uploading child pornography to an online account. The suspect account was traced to a residence in Parker, Texas.
A search warrant was obtained, and 41 images, all of them consistent with child pornography, were located on the owner’s computer. Some of the images showed nude girls as young as 4-5 years old.
Authorities say the pictures were loaded to Microsoft’s SkyDrive and reported by a Microsoft staff member to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children one month ago.
NCMEC forwarded the tip to Dallas Police, which tracked the IP address to Duncan.
Duncan, who has been employed by the Collin County Sheriff’s Office as a Detention Officer since 2008, is being held on $50,000 bond.
