The Michigan State Police has released additional information on a child pornography investigation that led to the arrest of an Alpena man on Friday.

As previously reported, 45 year-old Christopher Michael Olsen has been charged with two counts of aggravated possession of child sexually abusive material and one count of using a computer to commit a crime.

The investigation was conducted by the MSP Computer Crimes Unit, Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, after it received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The tip alleged that Olsen possessed multiple images and videos containing child sexually abusive material, to include infants, toddlers, adolescents, and teens.

Police said that during a Friday search of Olsen’s home and now former place of employment, All Saints Catholic School, investigators seized several electronic and storage devices. Potentially, several thousand images of suspected child sexually abusive images and videos were found on the devices.

Police encourage parents to speak to their children about the safe use of the Internet. Some of the many resources available to parents can be found at www.missingkids.org.

Olsen’s bond was reduced from $250,000 to $100,000. He is a former janitor and maintenance worker at All Saints.
