Cary man charged in child porn investigation

Posted February 15, 2013

— Police have charged a Cary man with second-degree exploitation of a minor in a child pornography investigation that allegedly led to his computer, according to a search warrant released Friday.

Marvin Allen Johnson, 48, was arrested Thursday afternoon and placed in the Wake County jail.

On Friday, investigators seized two computers, 11 VHS tapes, two DVDs marked "Adult XXX," 23 floppy disks, a camcorder and cellphone from Johnson's home, at 202 Woodcreek Drive, apartment L, according to the warrant.

Investigators say Johnson offered to distribute child pornography on peer-to-peer file-sharing sites 384 times between Dec. 12 and Feb. 11.

    Much too close for comfort. Glad they caught this individual...again!

    That address, I think, is over near Buck Jones and Nottingham -- and I seem to recall this isn't the first sex-offender found to be living in that area. At least the CPD have taken this one out of circulation and hopefully for a long, long time.
