38-year-old male arrested for Sexual Exploitation of a Child

Arrest made after search warrant service at Longmont residence

Boulder County, Colo. - On March 16, 2023, the Boulder County Digital Forensics Lab served a search warrant at a home in the 700 block of Mount Evans in the City of Longmont pursuant to a criminal investigation related to the possession of child sexual abuse material (CSAM). The investigation began after the Colorado Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force received information about the possession of CSAM from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

During the search investigators obtained probable cause to believe that Landon Innes, a 38-year-old male, committed the crimes of Sexual Exploitation of a Child, a class three felony, contrary to C.R.S. 18-6-403(3)(b) (one count) and Sexual Exploitation of a Child, a class five felony, contrary to C.R.S. Section 18-6-403(3)(b.5) (one count).

Investigators completed an arrest warrant, which was reviewed and approved by a judge. Mr. Innes was arrested without incident.

The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office houses local members of the Colorado ICAC task force, comprised of Boulder County Digital Forensics Lab investigators from the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, Longmont Department of Public Safety, Boulder Police Department and Boulder County District Attorney’s Office. In addition to other responsibilities, investigators assigned to the Boulder County Digital Forensics Lab are tasked with investigating child sexual exploitation cases and high technology crimes, plus digital forensics expertise and analysis on a wide range of cases.

Agencies who assisted with this investigation include the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, Boulder County District Attorney’s Office, Boulder Police Department and Longmont Department of Public Safety.
