ALEXANDRIA — An Alexandria man faces charges of possession of child pornography and child exploitation after police allegedly found incriminating evidence on his computer.
He was turned in allegedly by a woman after asking her if he could have sex with her 3-year-old daughter, police said.
Detectives were tipped off that Allen W. Anderson, 53, might have child pornography by a woman who described the allegedly disturbing encounter with him.
According to a probable cause affidavit, the woman contacted police in April to report the incident. She said that after meeting Anderson in February, the two spent time together.
One night when the two were at Anderson's office at Picture Perfect Auto Body, Anderson displayed pornographic movies on his computer, according to the woman. He showed videos that portrayed bestiality and later, videos with children ranging from ages 3 to 15 years old. The woman said Anderson showed her about 20 clips, then allegedly asked the woman if he could have sex with her 3-year-old daughter.
Detectives executed a search warrant on Anderson's office and found video clips and submitted them to the Indiana State Police Cyber Crime Unit for examination. The evidence was verified and returned to investigators in July. The warrant for Anderson's arrest was issued Wednesday.
In a phone interview with The Herald Bulletin on Thursday, Anderson declined to comment on the allegations.
Anderson is listed as the president of the company on the Picture Perfect Auto Body website. The shop is located at 2502 S. Park Avenue. Anderson also has a pending charge of driving while intoxicated from an arrest in September.
