InRe: SBPD child pornography suspect faces charges;
Police asking public for help

A tip from a community member, swift action from a judge and good police work led to the September 14 arrest of David Rice, a 42-year-old white male, living in the 500 block of Southmore Drive for possession of child pornography and marijuana.

Then the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office filed charges on September 16, which included a Class D felony for possession of child pornography and Class A felony for possession of marijuana. Rice’s bond was set at $500 and he posted it on the 17th. However, the investigation is ongoing and other charges may be forthcoming after further review and investigation by the prosecutor’s office and the St. Joseph County High Tech Crimes Unit.

Lead Detective Sgt. Mark Szweda said large quantities of evidence were secured after a search warrant was obtained; including a computer, Polaroid photographs, videos, magazines and pornographic and drug paraphernalia. Because of the nature of Rice’s past employment, police have reason to believe he had contact with youth and are attempting to identify the young males in the photographs.

“Now we need the public’s help…if anyone has any information related to this case, or if they have reason to believe their children have been in contact with the suspect, we would appreciate a call,” explained Sgt. Szweda.

He said they should contact the SBPD Detective Bureau at 235-9201, Crime Stoppers at 288-STOP
