Authorities Say Child Porn Found On Doctor's Computer

Posted:

Roanoke Co., VA - Federal agents say they found thousands of images of child pornography on an area doctor's computer in his office. 

Agents raided the Roanoke County office Dr. Steven Collins on August 13th, as part of a prescription drug investigation.

The pornography, agents say, was found during that investigation.

Agents came to Collins' office, located on Williamson Road, just outside of Roanoke city limits two weeks ago.

A federal affidavit shows agents found a couple of graphic files on one of the office machines.

A forensics evaluation turned up what appeared to be more than 40,000 other photos and videos that, agents believe, involve children as young as six years old.

Those images were deleted at one time. However forensics experts, according to the affidavit, were able to recover them.

A note left on Collins' office door said the office is closed until further notice.
