Police arrest a Rensselaer man, after finding thousands of child pornography images on his computer. Our Erin Connolly has more on why officials are saying cases like this one are unfortunately not out of the ordinary.

RENSSELAER, N.Y. -- Police say he had more than 20,000 images of child porn downloaded and stored on his personal laptop. And after a month long investigation with the FBI, Rensselaer Police arrested Jason Burnash, 30, on Monday. Although they didn't investigate this particular case, New York State Police say these situations are becoming all too common.

Lt. Joseph Donahue of the New York State Police said, "The problem we're having is it's so prevalent it's happening in our neighborhoods. This is not a sin city type of crime. It's not just big urban areas like New York City or Los Angeles, this is a rural America issue as well."

Burnash is charged with possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child, which is a class E felony. Lieutenant Donahue says studies have shown that a number of people who collect child porn go on to become sexual offenders.

Lt. Donahue said, "Not everyone who looks at child porn will go out and victimize a child, but if one does, that's too many."

As Rensselaer police continue to investigate Burnash's case, state police say those producing the pictures need to be held accountable as well.

Lt. Donahue said, "Another thing to think about is in order to have these pictures, a child under 16 engaged in a sexual act, there had to be a real child less than 16 engaged in that sexual which is child molestation, child rape. And then someone took a picture of it which affects them forever, ever and ever."

Burnash is in the Rensselaer County jail without bail. His next court date is March 4th and more charges could be pending. If you have any information about Burnash, you're asked to call Rensselaer Police.
