Ellensburg Man Arrested on Child Pornography Charges

Posted: Updated:
ELLENSBURG, WA - A man from Ellensburg is in the Kittitas County Corrections Center on child pornography charges.

Ellensburg Police searched the home of 47-year-old Brian Hopkins on the 600 block of South Ruby Street on Tuesday following a 4 month investigation.

Officers say back in April, they learned from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that Hopkins' email address had been associated with pornographic images of children.

When detectives searched his home, they also went through his internet history and emails. 

Officers then questioned and arrested Hopkins on multiple charges of possession of depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
