TSA agent charged with possession of child porn

Perry Hall, MD - It's the talk of the neighborhood.

Not just because of the nature of what happened.

But because no one really knew what happened.

County police arrested 41 year old Michael Scott Wilson and have charged him with possessing and distributing child pornography.

That arrest happened back on September 27th, and Wilson is out on bail.

Folks just found out about it today.

"It's been like two weeks and nobody in this neighborhood knows anything about it cause it's one thing to look at it it's another thing to wonder if this guy could actually act on something that he's doing and there are so many kids in this neighborhood." Neighbor Tara Pecaro says.

In charging documents police officers say they were able to download a file through a peer to peer network which featured a pre-teen girl having sex with an adult.

They traced the file back to Wilson.

"On September 12th our detectives initiated an investigation involving suspected distribution of child pornography during this investigation they were able to link some of these issues back to a computer that was being used by Michael Wilson they executed a search warrant and were able to recover evidence leading to the charges." County Police Spokesman Kathy Batten says.

Wilson admitted to county police that he had downloaded images of children...some as young as toddlers...having sex with adults.

They found images on his computer and on discs stored in a safe in the house.

Neighbors say this development is full of children under the age of 10 and this kind of news makes them very uneasy.

"My niece and nephew are here and we have a puppy and we walk the puppy past that house it make you think a creep lives there and you walk by that house with little kids all the time it's make you think he's looking out the window or what." Neighbor Taylor Bromwell says.

In a statement released this afternoon....a TSA spokesman says...that the TSA holds its security officers to high professional ethical standards and they are investigating.

The statement also says quote.

"The allegations against this individual in no way reflect on the outstanding job our more than 50,000 security officers do every day to ensure the security of the traveling public."
