Maryland State Police say a Howard County man was charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.
Forty-five-year-old Stacy Mizrahi of Ellicott City was charged with one count of distribution of child pornography and four counts of possession of child pornography. He was taken to the Howard County Central Booking Center, awaiting appearance before a court commissioner, according to the report.
A member of the Maryland State Police Computer Crimes Unit downloaded child pornography from a certain IP address, which led to Mizrahi’s residence. A search warrant was obtained and executed Thursday morning.
Troopers recovered a computer that held images and/or video files of child pornography. It was later determined that he is a leader, along with two adult females, of the Girl Scouts Troop #715.
Detectives have not determined if any crimes have been committed involving Girl Scouts’ members.
