After vehicle search, detectives find computer with images of children

A registered sex offender was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of possessing child pornography, Livermore police said.

He was convicted in 2005 for having oral sex with a person under 16 years old, an offense that requires him to register as a sex offender. Bartlett is also currently on parole for having oral and sexual intercourse with a person under 16 years old, police said.

While Bartlett was in the police station, detectives conducted a parole search on this vehicle, police said.

Inside the vehicle, detectives found a computer that allegedly contained numerous images of child pornography, police said.

Investigators are still attempting to identify the victims from the pornographic images.

Police are asking that anyone who has any information about crime involving Bartlett to contact Livermore police Lt. Matthew Sarsfield at

371-4730.
