Geek Squad Finds Child Porn on Man’s Laptop After He Spilled Gravy On It

An Iowa man asked Best Buy’s Geek Squad to fix his laptop after a gravy spill. However, he ended up in handcuffs. Robert Watson, 54, was arrested Wednesday after Best Buy employees discovered documents they suspected were child pornography. Watson brought his laptop to Best Buy in attempt to save his files after he spilled gray on the device.

The Geek Squad employees made the disturbing discovery while they were transferring the files from the gravy covered computer to a new device. They contacted police, who took both laptops as evidence and arrested Watson on 10 counts of child porn possession. Watson was able to describe several of the images found on the laptop and admitted to labeling the files as “13 year old” and “14 year old’s”.

Watson is being held on a $50,000 cash bond and was scheduled to appear in court on May 10th. To learn more about child pornography, click here.
