Child pornography seized from South Garden Street home

A Norwalk man was arrested Tuesday afternoon at his home after detectives said they seized a “sizable amount” of child pornography last Thursday.

The arrest of Robert Miller, 37, of 18 1/2 S. Garden St., was the result of a joint investigation by the Norwalk Police Department and authorities with the U.S. Postal Service. Detective Sgt. Todd Temple said investigators suspect Miller has abused several children in the Norwalk area.

“We have one 10-year-old victim we know for sure,” he added.

Miller remains in custody at the Huron County Jail on three local counts of gross sexual imposition, awaiting a bond hearing.

“Federal charges are pending on him,” Temple said.

Miller is accused of buying pornographic videos and other paraphernalia through the Internet, Detective Sgt. Jim Fulton said, and “may have been trading it with others.” Fulton said the suspect has no prior convictions.

Authorities don’t know how many possible victims there are.

“There are numerous photographs, so we don’t know,” Fulton said. “We know some of these were taken locally.”

Temple was asked about what, if anything, Miller said about the allegations when he was arrested.

“I can’t release details of the investigation,” the detective said.

There currently are no other suspects in the ongoing investigation in which “numerous people” have been interviewed.

“We are still looking for victims,” Temple quickly added.
