Brian Fortner, alleged duffel-bag owner.
How could the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office possibly track down the owner of a duffel bag full of kiddie porn that was tossed in a dumpster in the Northwest Valley?

In 27-year-old Brian Fortner's case, investigators probably just had to look at his driver's license -- which he allegedly left in the duffel bag full of kiddie porn.

On July 28, a man noticed someone drive up to the dumpster, toss a duffel bag in there, and drive off.

According to the Sheriff's Office, this man believed he'd just watched someone throw away "what appeared to be a perfectly good duffel bag," so he went to go retrieve it.

Turns out, that "perfectly good duffel bag" was loaded with kiddie porn, according to the MCSO, and the gentleman who recovered the bag also found a driver's license with the name Brian Fortner.

Shortly after the man recovered the duffel bag, he watched the same guy who dumped the bag drive back to the dumpster, rummage through it, and drive away again.

The man called in the license plate number to the MCSO -- telling investigators what he found in the duffel bag -- and noted that the guy who came back dumpster-diving looked a lot like the guy on the license.

The MCSO found that the license plate was indeed registered to Fortner, and after detectives took the "perfectly good duffel bag" from its new owner, a "sexual maturity rating" found that the kiddos in the pictures were younger than 13 years old.

Fortner was arrested Thursday after a warrant was served on his Peoria home, as the MCSO seized his computer and a few other items.

According to the Sheriff's Office, Fortner admitted to finding the child pornography on the Internet and printing it out.

Fortner faces 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Always pleased to read of some criminal scumbag getting caught because he's an idiot. Just adds that extra twist of the knife all scum bags deserve. How did we catch you? Easy . . . YOU ARE A MORON!

  Fortner getting "pegged" in jail is better than what he deserves. I thought it was common knowledge that you either burn, shred or bury the evidence.  Too many dumpster divers these days you can't trust the sanitation department to get to the dumpster before they do.

And the fact that he confessed most certainly screams that he was framed as well.

 

I think there are some people here who need a bit of help with their reading comprehension and cognitive thinking skills.

Set up?  Fine and good.  Except how did the guy whose drivers license was in the duffel bag know which dumpster to drive to, in a car with a license plate registered to the same name on the license, looking like the picture on the license?

 

I mean, really - we know how bright the Boys in Brown are.  How did they manage to get the innocent Mr. Fortner to drive to the dumpster where his bag was?

This seems like a total setup, he left his license in the duffel bag and it was connected by the same eyewitness that found everything? i dunno ...

This Looks To Me Like It Was A Setup Because Nobody Would Ever Leave A Drivers License With Criminal Material.

LOL you idiot JoeArpaioFan, what about this has anything to do with political affiliation? Are the Catholic Priests who molest children Democrats too? 

 

By the way, that wasn't a rhetorical question, I really want to know what this has to do with political affiliation so please respond with more of your wit.

 @wherewasi Reporting that he confessed could be false because you cannot believe everything the liberal media says. They have a way to twist around the facts and truth.

@wherewasi Is generalizing an entire group of people an example of a person who is bright?

 @ArpaioIsARacistAss Sir, I Have A Lot Of Friends Who Are Priests And As A Matter Of Fact Each One Of Them Is A Democrat.

 @ArpaioIsARacistAss I say he must be a Democrat because he was so stupid to leave his DL in the bag. Now why would anybody do that?  Sound like the same kind of stupid move the Democrats are known for.

 @ArpaioIsARacistAss He has no wit left.  He used it all trying to figure out whether or not there should be a comma between 'Democrat' and 'of'.

Red States vs. Blue States

 

  1) Blue states are better educated than red states, Blue States are more likely to be college educated. Illiteracy rates are higher in Red states than Blue states.

  2) Divorce rates are higher in Red States than Blue States

  3) Teen pregnancy rates are higher in Red States than Blue States

  4) People in Blue States are less likely to ignore the law than those in Red States

  5) Red States have higher rates of race-based crime and are more likely to shoot each other to death

  6) Blue states are more self-sufficient than Red states. Red states take more from the federal government than they give.

  7) Red states have higher rates of STDs than Blue states

  8) Red states have higher rates of violent crime and incarceration

  9) Red states have a higher rate of suicide death than Blue states

10) Red states have higher obesity rates than Blue states

11) Red states have higher rates of uninsured people than Blue states

12) Red states have a lower IQ average than Blue states

13) Pornography viewing is higher in Red states than Blue states

 

So, JAF, you really shouldn't make assumptions based on red or blue, R or D, conservative or liberal. You only prove that the above is true.

 

Think before you speak, son.
