Fugitive Focus: Charles Edwin Winchester
According to the incident report filed in Cass County District Court:
In early December, Fargo police and an agent with the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation responded to Centre Inc., 123 15th St. N. in Fargo, after a man there suspected his neighbor might have used a computer to view child pornography.
The neighbor, identified as Charles Edwin Winchester, gave authorities permission to search the laptop, an external hard drive and a portable flash drive.
Investigators found at least four images of girls, ages 3 to 15, involved in sexually explicit acts.
A Class C felony charge against Winchester was filed in Cass County District Court on Feb. 24, the same day a warrant for his arrest was issued.
A search of state court records found no previous cases against Winchester in either Minnesota or North Dakota.
