College Place man arrested on suspicion of child pornography

Police arrest a College Place man this morning on suspicion of distribution and possession of child pornography.

The arrest of 57-year-old David Polk comes after a six month investigation with both the College Place and Walla Walla Police Departments.

Walla Walla Police spokesman Tim Bennett says the arrest came after information was received that Polk allegedly had digital photos of nude teenage girls, ages 14-17, and that those photos were being transmitted electronically.

The investigation required the forensic search of numerous storage devices seized during the execution of a search warrant at Polk’s residence and thousands of digital images stored on those devices.

Polk is one of the moderators of the Facebook site Walla Walla Sweet Onion Burger.
