A man accused of possessing child porn has been taken off a Minnehaha County most wanted list, but has not been found.
Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Walsh said they are looking for 50-year-old Kevin T. Harty after issuing a warrant for possessing child pornography.
Early on Wednesday, a tweet was sent by @minnehahacounty, advising the public that authorities were searching for Harty. Authorities arrested Harty on Dec. 31, 2013, after finding child pornography at his home. Walsh said he was indicted on January 2014 and scheduled for trial on Wednesday.
After the tweet was sent and Harty was placed on the most wanted list, the sheriff’s office received information about his whereabouts. Walsh said the tweet was deleted, and Harty’s name was taken off the list, while authorities investigate a credible lead.
Harty is not suspected to have made child porn, and Walsh said authorities don’t believe any children were at risk in the area.
