Two La Verkin men arrested for child pornography

LA VERKIN – Two La Verkin men were arrested on multiple felonies for allegedly downloading child pornography.
 
Chief Lloyd Watkins said he received information from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, based out of Salt Lake City, that John M. Wilson, 62, and Michael Adam Gary, 37, were being investigated for downloading over a hundred images of child pornography.
 
Watkins said Wilson is a prominent member of the community and a realtor in Hurricane, and Gary is fairly new to the area. Both were arrested for exploitation of a minor after a search warrant served on Monday showed their computers had child pornography on them.
 
Watkins said the two have no relation to each other and they were investigated as separate cases.
 
Neither of the men have a history of arrests for sexual exploitation of a minor, Watkins said. He said he does not know the gender or age of the children in the photos, but said the men were downloading the images, not producing them.
