GLENWOOD SPRINGS – Garfield County Sheriff’s deputies and detectives arrested a man Saturday on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography.

Michael Bruce Shaw, 22, of Glenwood Springs was booked into the Garfield County jail.

According to a Garfield County Sheriff’s Office news release, the investigation began March 6, when a Park County Sheriff’s Office detective covering Internet crimes against children observed several files being offered from a specific Internet Protocol (IP) address in Glenwood Springs. From this IP address, the detective downloaded 25 images containing sexually explicit material involving children under the age of 18.

On Thursday, March 25, sheriff’s detectives from Garfield, Eagle and Park counties executed a search warrant at Shaw’s residence, according to the investigation to one, which, according to his grandmother, Shaw would use when he occasionally stayed with her.

The news release said investigators recovered at least 50 images from the computer’s hard drive that depicted children under the age of 18 engaged in, observing or being used for explicit sexual conduct.

Shaw is being held on a $10,000 bond and will be advised of charges in court Monday. He is facing one class-three felony count of sexual exploitation of a child – distribution, and two class-four felony counts of sexual exploitation of a child – possession.
