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.

swiss family ra...

i am sorry, but anyone who sexually entices a child, is trash, and i, for one, and also glad to see that they are removing more trash from our town... i hope and pray that all of his victims will be able to recover and live normal and productive lives..

to "Listen".... if you saw all of the young kids going up to his place, and you yhought that it was suspicous, did you caal anyone and tell them what you were seeing?? and if you didn't , why not??especially since you say that merely by looking at him , you could see that he was "weird".i hope that the pain and torment of those kids doesn't keep you awake at night, knowing that you had the opertunity and the obligation to stop the abuse, and you turned away..

i also want to say that i will remember this mans picture forever.. look at his red, sad eyes, you can even see some moisture under one eye. it would seem that he had been crying, do you think that he suddenly knows the pain he has inflicted on these kids lives, and really feels badly for those victims, or do you think that those tears are because he got caught doing what he enjoys, and he knows that no one will understand him,and now he faces an unknown punishment and public shame, and he feels badly for himself,

involved in a sexual perversion story.. surprise, surprise! i would really feel more comfortable living out by the all male campgrounds, than i would, living near some religous fanatics home.it seems to me, that the more religous they appear to be, the deeper the secrets they have to hide

i do agree that this guy is very disturbed, and i feel badly for any of the victims that he has corupted.. i hope that they get all of the help that they need to get passed this. My question is this, as far as i know , he didn't touch any of the kids, which isnt to say that he didn't mess them up severly... but i remember reading in the Norwalk paper about the 4 or 5 pedofile priests that went through Saint Paul's Catholic Church, and they told in the article about all of the kids that were assaulted, and had to live with the tragedy of what took place, and the list had to be in the hundreds of kids, and i didn't see the outrage that i see being spearheaded towards this guy. i don't understand this? as alot of you say, this guy looks like a weirdo, so it's almost not so shocking.. but the Catholic Priests that were involved , they are supposed to be there to teach the kids religion, what is right from wrong ! and this is what you get?? and yet people still drop their money into the basket each week to support them .. i will never understand this!! i would think that this would be a real slap in the face to all of the local victims of the abuse from these priests

i will be happy when they put this scum away for a long time. I just wish that he were taking alot of the Catholic priests away with him. not all of them, but the ones who are well known pedophiles. i still can't see how they are alowed to remain free, with the past criminal records that some of them have

re: swiss famil...

let's see if I can explain this again. I do not live on garden st. in fact I live across town. One of HIS neighbors I know said they saw kids going in there but since they didnt know him they didn't know if he had kids or not so they didn't call anyone and THEY told me this AFTER he was arrested moron so how would I be able to do anything about it???

Once again... (...

swiss family doesn't know what they are talking about and runs off at the mouth.

Re: friend of t...

So the police just made up this whole thing about finding child pornography in his home? I really doubt they will arrest a man with adult pornography. Last I checked that is legal. And maybe you read what I wrote wrong. I meant I know have sinned, but would still throw stones, but you are so right. I shouldn't throw stones or even a truckload of them. That wouldn't be right. Let's use a boulder instead. Cuckoo. Cuckoo. If I am crazy (like you claim a lot of people in Norwalk are), I am proud of it. I make sure my children aren't hanging out with perverts.

The N.Reflector you know who I am. Why do you see fit to continually delete my posts? Too harsh for some? Hey I'm not cursing. Yet you allow someone carte blanche to defend this monster. If & when he goes to prison he will know terror - that is REAL prison life for abusers of little people. Also please rein in Swiss & their novels.

To the lady persecuting the father of this child bull s____! I have known this family for 13 years and the father of this child does not know how to use a computer. You are as sick as that Bob guy if you think this way. You sure are no christian to make such claims as you dont even know what goes on in his home. He is a good father to his children and a good christian who has been attacked by other sick individuals such as you in the past. Maybe your family was one of them!!! Your children need protection if you think this Bob was set up. You are not too smart woman!!!

apparently i'm ...

you know if you all want to get technical, every single family in the world who owns a camera has child p.rn in their homes. if you have ever taken a picture of your child in the bathtub to commemorate their first bath or just having fun in the bubbles... that could be considered kiddie p.rn... and yes i am a christian but i never said that i was perfect... cursing is one of the sins i have. i'm not defending the pervert side of bob, i'm defending the side of bob that is kind and good to other people. as for you john b, i have known this family for quite awhile too and he ruined my dad's working life WITH A COMPUTER... so don't sit there and tell me that he doesn't know how to use a computer because this man was my dad's friend and he ruined a wonderful job for my dad. i don't care if you guys don't like me because i will never meet any of you jerks in real life... all you care to do is sit here and spout off at the mouth about people you don't even know... I'M NOT SICK, I'M FORGIVING AND WOULDN'T CHRIST FORGIVE IF THE PERSON TRULY ASKED FOR FORGIVENESS??? BOB IS NOT A BAD PERSON. PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES AND YET CONTINUALLY PEOPLE TRY TO MAKE HIM OUT TO BE A MONSTER WHEN HE'S NOT... think about that...

There is nothin...

Period. End of story. And if you want to get technical, a picture of YOUR child in a bath is NOT pornography. Quit trying to be an armchair lawyer cause you suck at it.

Your father is the one who put a spy disk on that mans computer! Your father ruined his own life and even lost his job on his own because they found stuff on his computer at work,that was not related to his job. You have been lied to by your own father! You are dillusional lady.This site is about Bob and he needs to be away from children for a long time. He may seem kind but that is how these sick individuals work. Your children could have been next since you like him so well and feel sorry for him. The little girl has to live with this for the rest of her life. There may be others too that he did not get caught over and are afraid to tell. You need to stop persecuting the father and get on with your life lady. You are making your own self look bad and people will lose respect for you!

still delusiona...

ok whatever john b. i don't care about what you say because you don't know my family and don't know what you are talking about. go get a life. i'm sick of people thinking that just because someone has a problem that they should say such acidic things about them. this is why people make me sick, because there are no decent people here anymore. and the ones you think are sick probably happen to be the nicest people around... why don't you talk to bob's lawyer... and i'm not an armchair lawyer... and yes it could be considered child p0rn because they are NAKED. you guys should just get a life and stop commenting because it's all over and done with, bob's life is ruined and he's in jail. so just go on with your pathetic lives instead of waiting to see what i'm going to say to you pathetic losers next...

OK Whackjob... ...

Just because you hear something on TV doesn't make it true. Call Children Services. A picture of your child in a bathtub is NOT child pornography. Naked or not. If that were the case then many proffesional photographers who take pictures of naked newborns would be locked up. If what you say was true a lot of people would be in jail. Bob is a freak. He gets sexually excited looking at naked children. Get real, quit making up stuff. And it sounds like John B. knows a little something about your lying father. He certainly didn't raise you to be a normal person.

I would like to...

when this perv. goes to court?

still delusiona...

who cares what you people say. he's already in jail, his life is ruined. as for my dad, you have no say in what went on in his life. naked pictures of children are naked pictures of children... so yes, that could be considered kiddie p0rn because someone could get ahold of them and look at them... pi$$ off people and quit being stupid, he's already in jail so just go on with your pathetic lives...

Bitter and sad....

Darling, you need some help. Get your head checked. You are living a sad and bitter life. Find some new friends too. Obviously the ones you pick leave much desired.

Oh, and YOU car...

You must care what we say. You certainly have done your share of responding and defending your friends sick and twisted life.

you know, i might need to get my head checked but children services says i'm a loving mother and that i'm undeserving of negative attention. if you guys hadn't read before, the only reason i defend bob is because Christ would forgive him. i don't have many friends, but bob at his core is a good person. who cares if i reply to you people? i shouldn't have to defend myself or bob to anyone. pictures are pictures.. he never once touched a child. that little girl sat there and told me to my face that bob never touched her. everyone has their own sins, don't persecute others.

How sick you must be to even talk to this child about what has happened. She has been told not to discuss this with anyone. She has been through enough.If I were her parents I would file harassment charges against you. And also defamation of character charges. I hope they do that. The Sheriffs office is monitoring this and I am sure they can see how sick you are. Get help lady!!

you bishes make...

if most of you heard michael jackson or pee wee herman (or some other convicted celebrity) was around, you'd would run to see them...get as close as possible...even touch him, yes, touch or hug known child molestors and p0rnographers. but, because Bob is NO celebrity, he gets no special treatment...not even decent treatment. why is that?

yeah, i read the paper. i read about very disturbing people every day...total strangers that make me sick. and if i didn't know Bob, i would react as some of you as well. but what is not in print here is how the "sizable" child p0rn collected was 2 dvd's (that he just brought home)...some "distributor" huh?! the "one 10-year old victim we know for sure" is total bullstuff. he never molested a kid and they won't find one to say he did. Bob has been painted as a monster in this article and i'm amazed how easy it was to trash him...and just as easily any of us could be trashed for a single or repeated mistake.

as for how sick Bob is for "getting his jollies" looking at naked kids...millions of people fall into that category. i remember howard stern counting down the days 'til those olsen twins turned 18 so we could all see them naked...legally. thousands of people in china and japan "enjoy" child prostitutes. and, how sick is it for 2 people of the same gender to get married? how sick is it for a 90 year-old man to marry a 20 year-old girl? and do we even know what age the girls were that Bob was admiring? because technically, if the girl is not 18 yet, it's considered kiddie p0rn. what exactly changes in a girl's body on her 18th birthday? nothing. she's just "legal".

Men are all dogs, right? Men are all perverts, right? so, what's with the Bob-bashing? lol, u kids...

SA (Anonymous)

change the name but not the game! you never talked to the child involved as you have not been to church! You are definitely disturbed and need help yourself! AS FOR TWO DISKS IT WAS MUCH MORE! Seems you do not know what you are talking about we all know who you are and they should investigate you and what you are doing with your own children! You have revenge on this family for your fathers lies and you need to get right with the Lord your own self! I know what I AM TALKING ABOUT! I know your family background and it makes me want to vomit at the thought you would have the nerve to stick up for that man. You must have sick thoughts lady! You even comment on the Drug site!! You think you know it all! Like father like daughter huh?

delusional (Ano...

excuse me, but i didn't question her about anything. she pulled ME to the side and said she had something to talk to me about and that she didn't want anyone else to hear it. her exact words to me were "bob likes little girls and not in a nice way, the police have interviewed me twice and just so you know he didn't do anything to me." they can't do anything to me John B. because i'm not doing anything to them and i haven't named any names so you don't even know who i am. thanks for the support from the other person... as for you SA you obviously DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT AS YOU DON'T KNOW MY FAMILY... and if we are so bad then why don't you tell me the things that make you SO sick??? because as far as i know, we are pretty darn normal.

MJ and PeeWee a...

Justice didn't serve the victims right in Michael Jackson's case. I can't help that their system sucks more than ours. Bob and "millions or others" are sick and twisted for finding a child sexually attracting. YOU make ME sick for thinking it's ok. It's a shame that every pervert can't be fried....along with their friends.

delusional (Ano...

i never said it was right. i don't condone the molestation or inappropriate actions towards children at all. it's just that in order to be forgiven you must forgive as well. bob has a problem and it's being taken care of... unfortunately he's in jail while it's being taken care of... nobody ever means for these things to happen... they just do... bob was seeking help for an adult p0rn addiction...
