Maryland State Police Arrest Pasadena Man On Child Pornography Charges

Troopers arrested a Pasadena man last week after a Maryland State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Investigation developed evidence of possession of child pornography.

The suspect is identified as Richard Ray Brewer, 58, of Pasadena. Brewer is charged with 11 counts of possession of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. Brewer was transported to the Anne Arundel County Detention Center, before being released after posting a $25,000 bond.

Beginning in January 2023, the Maryland State Police Computer Crimes Unit initiated an investigation into the possession of child pornography online. At about 5 a.m. on Friday, troopers from the Maryland State Police Computer Crimes Unit and the Glen Burnie Barrack, along with investigators from Homeland Security Investigations, served a search warrant at the identified residence of the suspect. A preliminary forensic review of the suspect’s electronic devices revealed multiple child pornography files. Brewer turned himself into investigators at the Glen Burnie Barrack.
