Police search home in Rochester for child pornography after recent investigation

ROCHESTER — A large police presence was seen Thursday near a Goldrush Lane home, where a search warrant was executed for potential child pornography.

Rochester police detectives, as well as members of the N.H. Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, were seen entering a mobile home at 76 Goldrush Lane, in front of which a police crime scene unit truck was stationed.

Law enforcement officials were on the scene Thursday from about 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., said Police Capt. Paul Toussaint.

He said the search warrant was issued as a result of an investigation by Rochester Police and Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

The investigation started fairly recently.

Toussaint would not comment on whether any child pornography, or other illegal items, were found as a result of the search warrant.

As of early Thursday evening, no arrests have been made in connection to the case.

The investigation is currently active and ongoing.

The Goldrush Lane mobile home investigated Thursday was the location of a three-hour standoff, in 2009, between police and the home’s resident, at the time, who allegedly climbed on the roof of the home with a hunting knife and a loaded .357 Magnum revolver. At the time, the resident was charged with disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed firearm without a license, both misdemeanors.

Police would not confirm whether the resident is still living at the Goldrush Lane home.
