Police: Man found with 200 child porn images

RICHMOND — The search of a Dixie Plaza resident ended in police finding “over 200 digital images depicting child pornography,” said Richmond Police Chief Larry Brock.

Dana Feltner, 38, was arrested Tuesday for two counts of possession of a matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

In November 2012, Richmond police detectives initiated an investigation into Feltner’s activities after receiving information indicating that he was in possession of child pornography, according to Brock. Detectives executed a search warrant at Feltner’s residence and recovered hundreds of digital images of child porn, Brock said.

A warrant for Feltner’s arrest was issued Tuesday and he was taken into custody on Celia Drive without incident. He remains in the Madison County Detention Center under a $10,000 cash bond.    

                        

Another arrest made in undercover drug roundup

Richmond police found yet another person during its ongoing, covert operation to catch those illegally selling narcotics.

Jimmy Bertotto, 29, of Keri Ann Court, Richmond, was arrested Tuesday and was charged with three counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

According to police, Bertotto sold 11-and-a-half oxycodone (Percocet) tablets to an undercover police officer.

The man surrendered at the Richmond Police Station just before 3 p.m. Tuesday.
