Former Peabody resident, 46-year-old Robert L. Stevens, was arrested May 17 and charged through the Harvey County attorney’s office with eight counts of sexual exploitation of a child, a level five felony offense.
The Harvey County Sheriff’s office, in cooperation with the Newton Police Department and Sedgwick Police Department, served a search warrant at 101 N. Commercial Ave., Sedgwick, after information had been developed leading officers to suspect child pornography was being viewed. The results of the search and subsequent interviews led to Stevens’ arrest.
Bond is set at $100,000.
