UPDATE: Spokane Child Porn Suspect Arrested One Block from Elementary School

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police have arrested a Spokane man they say was in possession of "hundreds upon hundreds" of images containing child pornography.  A search warrant was served Thursday morning in the 3400 block of E. Fairview.  That's about a block away from Cooper Elementary. He's identified as 44-year old Darrel Wayne Monzingo.

SPD was notified about Monzingo by a detective in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The detective, who works with ICAC (Internet Crimes Against Children), was posing as a user of child porn and had been tracking the suspect for some time. 

Monzingo is married with four children.  Three of the children are in elementary school. The suspect's wife found out about the allegations this morning and left the house crying, hysterically.  Police do not know if Monzingo had any images of his children or children who attend Cooper.  They will conduct a forensic audit of the suspect's computer.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - One of the great parts about living in Spokane, is if you head out of town in any direction, you're going to run into some beautiful farm land. I grew up south of Spokane, near Plaza, and one of my favorite things to do was to sit on the porch at night and stare south towards Rosalia at all of the rolling hills of wheat, lentils, barley and peas. >>
