Child pornography seized with warrant

From Maine-

The former pastor of a Tremont church is under investigation for possession and dissemination of child pornography, according to a state police affidavit for a search warrant executed in January at his Southwest Harbor home.

Members of the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit executed the search warrant at the Ridge Acres Lane home of Wayne Buchanan on Jan. 6, seizing computers, thumb drives and a memory card. Police began their investigation on Dec. 27, after a detective identified a particular computer “making available” files that previously had been identified as child pornography, the affidavit states. Detectives later determined that Buchanan was the subscriber at that Internet address.

Buchanan was pastor of the Tremont Congregational Church and St. Brendan’s Anglican Mission. He resigned on Jan. 7. At the time, the Rt. Rev. Julian Dobbs, diocesan bishop of the Convocation of Anglican Church in North America, issued a statement.
