Police seize computers from Cary apartment
Police seized digital storage media and two laptop computers from a Cary apartment where a resident is suspected of trading in child pornography, according to a search warrant released Friday.Posted — Updated
Investigators monitoring peer-to-peer file trading networks noticed files known to be pornographic being downloaded to and uploaded from a particular Internet Protocol (IP) address. They traced that address to a Time Warner Cable Internet account registered to Andrew Walter Mannebech, 26, of 124 Westover Hills in Cary.
In requesting the search warrant, Officer Kevin R. West wrote, "It is highly probable in my training and experience with this network that a household member of the account identified by Time Warner is active in possession and sharing known or suspected child pornography."
According to the warrant, Mannebach identifies himself on Facebook and other Web sites as a graduate student studying pharmacy at Campbell University.
