Officer Weldon Kovacevich
01/27/2006- TEXAS - Attorney General Greg Abbott said it's one of the most horrific cases of child pornography his office has ever investigated.
Weldon Kovacevich thought he was coming to pick up some personal items.
Instead, he was placed under arrest by members of the Attorney General's Cyber Crimes Unit.
"Mr. Kovacevich?" said someone from the AG's office, You have a weapon on you sir?"
The AG's office served a search warrant at Kovacevich's Bayou Vista home earlier this month.
They say they found more than 1,000 explicit images of children involved in sexual conduct
Kovacevich was arrested for possession and promotion of child pornography.
Possession for having the images and promotion because investigators say they also have evidence that Kovacevich transmitted those images to others.
Kovacevich was used to being on the other end of an arrest. For four years in the 1990s, he was a Galveston County Sheriff's Deputy and he spent eight years as a Bayou Vista Police Officer before leaving the department in 2003.
Now he is a mortgage loan officer and president of the Bay Area V Twins, a motorcycle club that group runs a charity event called "Bears to Share".
Teddy bears and donations are collected by club members and delivered in person to children being cared for at the Shriner's Hospital in Galveston-
For now, Kovacevich is free on a $150,000 bond.
