An Iowa man ended up in handcuffs after he asked Best Buy’s Geek Squad to fix his laptop after a gravy spill.
Robert Leo Watson, 54, was arrested after employees at the
electronic store discovered documents they suspected were child pornography on Wednesday.
Watson brought his laptop to Best Buy in an effort to save his data after he
spilled gravy on the device.
While they were transferring the files from the
“gravy-covered computer” to a new device, employees made the disturbing
discovery, according to the report. They called the police, who took both
laptops as evidence and apprehend Watson on 10 counts of child porn possession.
Des Moines Register reported Watson described several of the
pictures found on the device and admitted to labeling the files as “13 year
old” and “14 year old’s.”
Watson is scheduled to appear in court on May 10 and being
held on a $50,000 cash bond.
