A California man was arrested for having more than 900 child pornography images in his possession, according to police. The man was turned in to the police by his wife after she allegedly found a hidden camera inside a bathroom at the couple’s home.

On March 8, the wife found a hidden camera in the bathroom of their house. She confronted her husband about the hidden camera. The husband reportedly admitted that he knew about the secret surveillance camera, but vowed to remove and throw away the camera.

The wife took the camera and hard drive to the authorities because she feared that her husband “had nefariously recorded their young children using the bathroom,” according to the Redding Police Department.

High-tech crimes detectives conducted a preliminary forensic analysis of the hard drive and said they found more than 900 images of child pornography images and videos on the device.

“The videos showed children and adults using the bathroom who did not appear to know they were being recorded,” the Redding Police Department said.

Ryan Rovito, 34, was arrested on Thursday during a traffic enforcement stop after detectives obtained a warrant. Rovito was charged with possession of child pornography and the surreptitious recording of an identifiable person who was undressed. He was booked at the Shasta County Jail. Rovito has since been bailed out of jail.

Anyone with information regarding the accusations against Rovito is asked to contact the Redding Police Department at 530-225-4200.

According to the United States Sentencing Commission, more than 99% of child porn offenders were men in 2018. Over 76% of child porn offenders had little or no prior criminal history.

There was a whopping 2026% increase in child porn cases between 1996 and 2005, according to FBI data.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received more than 21 million tips regarding the online exploitation of children in 2020.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children said technological advancements such as smartphones, thumb drives, email, social media networks, and cloud computing has made it much easier for sex offenders to collect, store, and trade child pornography.
