Indictment: Child porn found on employee’s company phone

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (KSNT) – A federal grand jury returned an indictment Wednesday charging a Kansas man with producing child pornography.

Ronny D. Peters, 39, Kansas City, is charged with two counts of producing child pornography. According to court records, the investigation began when Peters’ former employers called the FBI to report finding child pornography on a company cell phone Peters turned in after he was fired. The phone belonged to Pop-A-Lock, a locksmith company based in Lafayette, La. The company has franchise operations across the United States and Canada, including Kansas City.

The indictment alleges Peters sexually exploited a minor child to produce videos that investigators found on the phone.

If convicted, he faces not less than 15 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000 on each count.

The FBI investigated.
