The U..S. Attorney’s office in Buffalo this afternoon confirmed the arrest of 45 year old Eric Laube, of Canandaigua, on charges of receipt, distribution and possession of child pornography. Last August an undercover FBI Task Force Officer connected to a certain Peer-To-Peer network and discovered that a device belonging to Laube was being used to distribute video and picture files containing child pornography. The images and video depicted naked, prepubescent girls.
In December, a federal search warrant was executed at Laube’s State Route 64 home . Officers seized several digital devices, including two portable hard drives, a thumb drive, a laptop and a desktop computer. A review determined that the devices contained approximately 1,130 images of child pornography and approximately 10 videos of child pornography. Laube made an initial appearance this afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jonathan Feldman in Rochester was released on electronic monitoring.
