Forty-year old Lawrence Elander of Harrison was arrested by Boone County Sheriff’s Office on Friday (June 14th) on Charges of Computer Exploitation of a Child and Possession of Computer Child Pornography. 

Sheriff’s investigators say Elander’s charges stem from solicitation of sexually explicit digital images of juvenile females he met in online chat rooms. 

The investigation was initiated after Elander misplaced his cellphone and it was found and turned over to the Berryville Police Department.

Investigators interviewed Elander, who confessed to soliciting the juveniles to send him pornographic images of themselves.  According to the sheriff’s office, there are no known victims in Boone County or North Central Arkansas.  He is being held at the Boone County Jail on $25,000.00 Bond.
