Lincoln man arrested for possession of child porn

LeRoy Downey

Police say a Lincoln man was caught with child pornography by his wife.

Police officer Katie Flood says 46-year-old LeRoy Downey was arrested after his wife turned him into police.  Flood says Downey's wife found a USB flash drive in his vehicle and decided to look at its contents.  Flood says she found an image of a naked young girl and called police.

Police examined the flash drive and found more images and video files of children, under the age of 18, in sexually explicit conduct or poses.  Police say there is no indication that he was manufacturing or creating the images.
