Just over a week ago, the Visalia, California police received a tip about a man who they believe molested a child and had numerous files of child pornography. On Friday, that investigation led them to Hanford, where they arrested the man for the crimes.

Visalia police officers quickly rushed to arrest Ryan Koelewyn, 34, as he left work in Hanford and walked to his car on Friday morning. Koelewyn said nothing to investigators during his arrest. He’s in custody for lewd acts on a minor between the ages of 14 and 15, plus possession of child pornography.

Officers first began investigating the crimes back on April 7.

After Koelewyn’s arrest, officers served a search warrant at his home in Hanford. They seized several hard drives, computers, cellphones and a pile of CDs. The evidence will now be sent off to be forensically analyzed.

Detectives say Koelewyn is a computer engineer and has worked in IT in Visalia and Hanford.

Depending on the severity of the child pornography files found on his devices, police say it’s possible he could face not just state but federal charges as well.
