A Waukee man was arrested Friday for allegedly possessing child pornography, concluding a year-long investigation by the Waukee Police Department and the U.S. Justice Department Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.
Larry Lee Becke, 50, of 600 Horizon Dr., #192, Waukee, was charged with six counts of first-offense purchase/possess depiction of minor in sex act.
According to court records, the Waukee Police Department received a report from the ICAC in January 2019 and opened an investigation of Becke. A search warrant was served at Becke’s residence, and a computer and multiple hard drives were seized.
“The computer was sent to ICAC lab for forensic analysis,” according to court records, “and there were numerous images of obvious child pornography on his computer.”
An arrest warrant was issued Jan. 2, 2020, by Dallas County Magistrate Jonathan M. Kimple and served Jan. 3 by the Waukee Police Department.
Becke is held at the Dallas County Jail on a $2,000 cash or surety bond. He is scheduled to appear Jan. 4 in Dallas County District Court.
