U.S. Capitol Police officer arrested on child porn charge
A veteran U.S. Capitol Police officer was arrested on Thursday after Manassas City police officers tracked child pornography distributed on the Internet to his home in Woodbridge.
Dennis Bell, 55, was arrested Thursday as he returned home from work. Manassas City police said a wider computer forensics investigation that began in December tracked illegal images to Bell’s home. Police said the images originated there and were sent via the Internet.
The FBI, Prince William County police and members of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force searched Bell’s home on Thursday and removed several computers containing child pornography, police said.
Bell has been charged with one court of distributing child pornography and one count of posessing child pornography.
He is being held at the Prince William Adult Detention Center on $20,000 bond and is expected to appear in court on May 25.
