Bluefield teenager arrested for possession of child porn

BLUEFIELD —  Following the execution of a search warrant at a Frederick Street residence, an officer serving with the West Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force arrested a Bluefield man on charges related to having 148 pictures and videos depicting prepubescent female children engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

Joshua Poff, 18, of Bluefield was taken into custody after police executed the search warrant. Detective Cpl. Steven A. Sommers said that during an interview with the suspect, Poff “admitted to utilizing certain websites to search for and download child pornography,” according to the criminal complaint narrative that Sommers provided to the court to obtain an arrest warrant.

Poff is in custody, awaiting his initial appearance on the charges.
