That’s according to the criminal complaint filed Monday in Olmsted County Court. The investigation started in early June when the Rochester Police Department received a tip regarding suspected child sexual abuse material connected to a Microsoft account that was traced to a residence in northwest Rochester. 

In July, investigators served a warrant at the home of 74-year-old Jack Richard Landon. The court document says police seized multiple hard drive devices and a laptop from the home.

The charges say the devices had “several thousand” files containing child sexual abuse material, some involving children as young as one year old. A storage disc seized during the search indicated it was last modified in 1999-2000. 

Landon told investigators the email address included in the tip that prompted the search was his. He also said investigators would find child pornography on the devices, the complaint says.
