Iron County Man Arrested for Possession of Child Pornography

(Ironton) The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control arrested an Iron County man on Thursday for several felonies, including possession of child porn charges.

A news release from the Missouri State Highway Patrol says a search warrant was served at the residence of 31-year-old Thomas D. Miller of Ironton by members of the Division of Drug and Crime Control’s Digital Forensics Investigative Unit and the Missouri Digital Forensic Center.

Investigators say they seized child porn and computer equipment from Miller’s residence on Iron County Road 2334.

Miller was contacted at his place of employment off Highway 221 in Pilot Knob.

After Miller was informed he was under arrest, he allegedly attempted to flee by physically pushing and pulling away from troopers.

Miller was brought under control, placed into handcuffs and taken to the Iron County Jail.

The Iron County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has charged Miller with five counts of possession of child porn and one count of resisting or interfering with an arrest.

The investigation by the Division of Drug and Crime Control is still ongoing.

Miller remains in custody with no bond set at the moment.

Miller will make his first court appearance Thursday morning for a counsel status hearing.
