ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, Md. — A man has been arrested for uploading child pornography to an internet site from his Anne Arundel home.

On July 24, 2019 the Anne Arundel County Child Abuse Unit initiated an investigation in response to a report of a specific account that was directly associated in uploading child pornographic images to a particular internet site.

The information was provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) which is a non-profit organization whose mission is to find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation and prevent child victimization.

As the result of issuing and executing several court orders, detectives identified an address involved with uploading the child pornography.

A couple of months later, detectives executed a search warrant at an address in the 1800 block of Watch House Circle South in Severn. Police seized numerous digital devices as evidence so that they could be forensically analyzed.

The suspect, identified as 52-year-old Brian David Frisby, was on-scene and interviewed with police.

After receiving the results from the forensic extraction of the digital devices seized during the search warrant, detectives found evidence of child pornography.

Child Abuse detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Frisby, charging him with nine counts of possession of child pornography. On Tuesday, Frisby was placed under arrest without incident.

The Anne Arundel County Police is urging anyone with information on this incident or the suspect to contact the Anne Arundel County Child Abuse Unit at 410-222-4733. You can also remain anonymous by calling the Anne Arundel County Tip Line 410-222-4700 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-7LOCKUP or 410-756-2587.
