Ex-Ohio policeman charged with child pornography

July 1, 2014

CINCINNATI (AP) — Federal authorities say a former southwest Ohio police officer has been arrested in Michigan on child pornography charges while entering the United States from Canada.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Tuesday that 61-year-old Robert Glassmeyer was arrested on a bridge at the port of entry in Port Huron, Michigan, after returning from Ontario.

Authorities say the retired Cincinnati police officer was arrested Sunday when a routine inspection found screenshot images of child pornography on a video camera in Glassmeyer’s possession. Authorities say he was arrested on federal charges of possession and transportation of child pornography.

Glassmeyer is in jail in Detroit pending a detention hearing in federal court Wednesday. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call for comment Tuesday.
