Child porn defendant arrested at movie theater

F.T. Norton

A Carson City man out on bail as he awaits trial on charges that he possessed dozens of images of child porn, was arrested Sunday night as he exited the movie theater in violation of his bail conditions.

Glenn Ware, 60, was booked into the Carson City Jail at 10:14 p.m.

He was initially arrested April 24 on a warrant charging him with 32 counts of possession of child pornography following a March search of his home in which computers and other items were seized by investigators.

Ware came to the attention of authorities after an undercover federal agent allegedly exchanged e-mails with Ware in which Ware solicited child pornography, according to police reports.

A subsequent search of his computers revealed dozens, “if not hundreds” of images of children as young as 12 months old being sexually violated, said Detective Craig Lowe.

According to Rory Planeta, chief of the Carson City Department of Alternative Sentencing, Ware posted $100,000 bail April 28, and was released from custody to house arrest. H was also ordered to wear a GPS monitoring device to track his whereabouts for the first 40 days.

On Sunday, an Alternative Sentencing officer was attempting to locate Ware to remove the GPS device, when it was discovered that Ware was at the Galaxy Theater, in violation of a court order that he be on house arrest and stay away from areas frequented by children, said Planeta.

Ware was arrested as he exited the building about 9:15 p.m.

During a hearing this morning, Justice of the Peace Robey Willis reinstated Ware’s house arrest and GPS monitoring.

A preliminary hearing is set for July 6.
