Bremerton man arrested for possession of child pornography

A Bremerton man and registered sex offender was arrested Wednesday morning for possession of child pornography.

According to court documents, detectives with the Bremerton Police Department received a tip in early January from Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC), alerting them to images uploaded to Facebook messenger by Anthony Craig Davis, 37, of Bremerton back in November. Davis had been released from prison in September — just seven months prior — after serving a three-year sentence for two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

One of the images was of Davis himself on both a Tinder profile and Facebook page, the other was a video of a female child between 8-12 years old.

On Jan. 24 BPD Detectives were granted a search warrant for Comcast Cable to identify the IP address associated with the image uploads. The cable network provided an address matching Davis’ registered residence.

On Jan. 11 BPD Detectives were granted a search and seizure warrant on Davis’s home, however, by the time detectives arrived the next morning, Davis had already left for work. Detectives followed up with Davis at his workplace, where he was arrested and transported to the precinct for an interview.

According to documents from BPD, during the interview, Davis confirmed that it was his Tinder and Facebook profile connected to the IP address collected by Comcast. He also allegedly admitted to watching child pornography and downloading images of child pornography to his cell phone and other cell phones he reportedly keeps in his dresser drawer.

Davis was reportedly asked about the video of the female child during the interview and stated he didn’t recall downloading or uploading the video.

Davis was charged with possession of child pornography with bail set at $100,000.
