Amboy Child Porn Charges 09 Feb 12

A 52-year-old Amboy man faces multiple felony charges after thousands of suspected child pornography images were confiscated from his home. The girlfriend of Dwight Thomas Traxler contacted the Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office Sunday night to report the pornography. She told investigators she had stumbled upon the images involving children between the ages of 5 and 12 at Traxler’s home after dating him for around 10 months. Authorities obtained a search warrant, and confiscated more than 100 videotapes and about 150 compact discs, each containing around 1,500 images. Some of the items used to manufacture methamphetamine were also found in Traxler’s home, along with a loaded semi-automatic rifle. He had previously served a 71-month prison sentence for manufacturing meth.
