Police were called to Affordable Computer Repair in Bellevue on Thursday afternoon after employees found possible child pornography on a customer’s computer.

That computer belonged to Jaeger, police said.

Officers confirmed that there was child pornography on the computer being repaired and executed a search warrant Friday morning. Police said hundreds of suspected child pornography images were found on the computer.

Jaeger’s home was later searched as well.
