A Goose Creek man has been arrested and charged with four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
The Goose Creek Police Department’s investigation revealed more than 3,000 photos of nude or semi-nude juvenile females on the computer of Alexander Green, 20, of 69 Webster Street, according to a police report.
GCPD booked Green on Jan. 5. His bond totals $160,000 on the charges, according to the jail’s website.
On Dec. 5, an agent with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service contacted GCPD in regard to the sexual exploitation of a minor that occurred at the above address, according to the report.
Green spoke to a Navy doctor about his child pornography addiction, according to the report. Green told the doctor he mainly liked to view 9 to 10 year old females but said he may have viewed some that were other ages on his computer, according to the report.
Green told the doctor he watched child pornography for sexual gratification. He said he had been caught on two occasions by his wife, according to the report. When GCPD officers arrived nobody was home. The Naval Weapons Station base magistrate gave officers the authority to seize several items from Green’s residence.
Those items include: a desktop computer, an iPod, USB drives, a cell phone, an Xbox, a bag of green leafy plant material believed to be marijuana and a glass smoking device, according to the report.
The investigation revealed on Dec. 12 that Green had 3,002 photos of nude or semi-nude juvenile females, 45 videos of nude juvenile females and 330 Anime photos that police marked for further review.
On Dec. 17, an investigator interviewed Green. On Dec. 19 an investigator had a judge sign four arrest warrants.
Those warrants were served at about 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 5 after Naval Weapons Station Police advised they had Green in custody, according to the report.
