Moscow Police began their investigation of 42-year-old Brian Taylor in late May following a report of an elementary student telling her school counselor that Taylor did inappropriate things to her and took pictures of it. On Monday, police searched Taylor's trailer on Palouse River Drive for a second time and found enough evidence to arrest him.
"We were able to find cameras and SD cards," said Moscow Police Chief David Duke. "Upon reviewing those, graphic files of child pornography and manufacturing were located that involved three juveniles."
Police also found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in the trailer. Taylor was arrested on multiple felony counts that include Lewd Conduct with a Minor Under 16, Male Rape, Sexual Exploitation of a Child, and Possession of a Controlled Substance.
Police said that additional charges are pending. Taylor is currently being held at the Latah County Jail on a $500,000 bond.
