Pedophilia is one of the most rampant and worrying activities among criminals because there’s a huge underground market for them, especially in the cyberspace. Without a doubt, there’s a lot of them, so many, that the usual adults you transact with might even be suspect, like one man who went in for a file transfer only for the technicians to discover his child porn stash.

Back in August last year, a Des Moines, Iowa man named Robert L. Watson, 54, accidentally spilled gravy on his laptop, breaking it in the process. So, Watson took it to a local Best Buy in order to transfer and save his files. However, the employees at Best Buy noticed something abnormal (and criminal) in his files: child porn. Some of the children were even estimated to as young as 4 years old.

“During this file transfer process, employees at Best Buy ‘Geek Squad’ observed multiple images they believed contained child pornography. Once this transfer was complete both computers were collected by Des Moines police as evidence,” according to a complaint filed last month.

Still, upon being questioned by the police, Watson defended that he only downloaded the images of child porn. He explained that he only wanted to show them to someone. Regardless, Watson was charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography. He was arrested back on Tuesday with a bond of $50,000.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson from Best Buy also commented that they didn’t actually rummage through Watson’s files. The child porn photos were discovered unintentionally as per the usual process of transferring data. They did feel their obligation to report such evidence of criminal activity, of course. Let’s also not forget the real hero of this tale: the gravy.
