Reno Police Department says a Reno couple has been charged with multiple child sex related offenses after detectives reportedly found sexually explicit material involving a 9-year-old child.
RPD says officers responded to a call related to possible child pornography on April 5. The RPD Sex Crimes/Child Abuse Unit was contacted and detectives were able to get a search warrant, where they reportedly found several photographs and videos on the computer. 34-year-old Joseph Brown and 22-year-old Adriana Clark, as well as a 9-year-old child, were reportedly identified in the photos and videos.
Brown and Clark were arrested on April 7 after detectives say they admitted to all of the charges against them, including sexual assault of a minor under the age of 14, battery to commit sexual assault, production of child pornography, lewdness with a minor, possession of child pornography and peeping. Only Brown faces lewdness with a minor and peeping charges.
Officials say the investigation is ongoing and anyone with information can call RPD at 775-334-2188 or call or text Secret Witness at 775-322-4900.
