Cops Say Stephen Saftler Kept an 800-Image Kiddie-Porn Gallery on His Work Computer
|Broward Sheriff's Office|
Still, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department says that's what 62-year-old Stephen Saftler's been doing, as they served a warrant at his workplace in Sunrise yesterday.
After seizing the computer in Saftler's office, police say they found it contained more than 800 images and 20 videos of kids being sexually abused by adults.
"Many of the children depicted in the videos were as young as 1 year old," Fort Lauderdale Police Detective DeAnna Garcia says.
Saftler was discovered as part of an investigation by the South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children task force, as police allege investigators discovered Saftler's IP address was sharing the kiddie porn.
That IP address led them to Saftler's place of work -- ESMO Inc., in the 10100 block of NW 53rd Street in Sunrise.
Saftler's been charged with 50 counts of possessing child pornography and is being held in the Broward County Jail on $501,000 bond.
