Fugitive Focus: Charles Edwin Winchester

Local and federal authorities are seeking to apprehend a 44-year-old Fargo man who is wanted for allegedly possessing child pornography.

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.
