Bulldog Report

On Friday, February 19, 2021, Boone County Sheriff’s Office detectives executed a search warrant on South Main Street (Walton) after identifying a suspect in a child pornography investigation.

The suspect was ultimately arrested. Randy S. Duke, 40, Walton was identified after a connection was made to his computer through a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) file sharing network by an undercover computer, which is owned and operated by the Campbell County Police Department.

Once the connection was made, Campbell County Police detectives received 3,600 photographs and/or videos from Duke’s computer.

Duke’s home address was identified through his IP address. Detectives from Campbell County learned that Duke’s home address was located in Boone County and referred the investigation to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office. Detectives executed a search warrant at Duke’s residence early Friday morning.

When detectives knocked on the door, Duke attempted to unplug and conceal his electronic equipment. He later admitted to detectives that he uses torrent software to download, distribute and view naked images of girls who are approximately 12 years of age.

A Warrant of Arrest was signed against Randy Duke for one (1) count of Possession or Viewing Matter Portraying a Sexual Performance by a Minor – Class D Felony and one (1) count of Distribution of Matter Portraying a Sexual Performance by a Minor – Class D Felony.

He was arrested Friday afternoon and lodged at the Boone County Detention Center. His bond has been set $200,000 cash.
