An arrest has been made in connection with an overdue rental truck that was found with images of nude children inside the vehicle, authorities said.
"This arrest could not have been made had the business owner not called to report these disturbing images," said Capt. James Agee of the St. Albans Police Department.
Diamond Jewelers of St. Albans also rents Budget trucks and rented a cargo truck to a man who kept it past the contract, Agee said. When the truck was located and inspected, several items were found inside, including printed pictures of juveniles and a computer.
The man who had rented the truck was found at a homeless shelter in Charleston. Patrolman P.M. Farry obtained a warrant for his arrest.
Joseph W. Brauksieck, 32, most recently from Virginia, was arrested without incident on Friday.
After learning a search warrant was obtained for his computer, he confessed to possessing the images and said more would be found on the computer, Agee said.
Brauksieck is lodged in South Central Regional Jail with bond set at $50,000.
