After a five month investigation the Department of Homeland Security has arrested a Warwick man for having over 600 images of child pornography including images of his 7-year-old step daughter.

Sean Keener made his first appearance in U.S. District Court on Friday after investigators say they tracked images found in a child pornography bust back in June to him. Keener was ordered to be detained until his next appearance.

In June, a large quantity of images were found on a flash drive during a Massachusetts child pornography bust. One of the images was of a young girl sleeping next to a handwritten sign that said " Rhodeislandguy401@gmail.com :) step daughter 3-20-2013. "

Investigators tracked the email address to a Russian website called IMGSRC.ru. There other photos of the same girl were depicted including photographs of her in the shower and being compromised by an adult.

Investigators tracked the account to Sean Keener in Warwick. They discovered that Keener's fiancé had a 7-year-old daughter. According to the federal court affidavit the images of the girl online matched those of Kenner's fiance's daughter.

Investigators obtained a search warrant for Kenner's home and learned that he had moved out. They learned he had moved his belongings including his computer to his father's home, also in Warwick.

When investigators search his Keener's father's home they found a computer belonging to Keener that contained over 600 pornographic images of children including images of the 7-year-old girl.
