Stan Romanek (pictured below), a controversial figure in the UFO community -- known for his claims of personal alien abduction and a dubious video allegedly showing an alien looking through a window in his house -- has been arrested on charges of "sexual exploitation of a child," according to a Loveland, Colo., Police Department press release.
Romanek, 51, of Loveland, had been the subject of a long-term investigation that began with a search warrant in April 2013.
"The search warrant was executed at Romanek's home and followed several tips that were provided by Homeland Security that were then investigated further by Loveland police detectives and the Northern Colorado Regional Forensics Laboratory," the press release says.
Romanek was under investigation "of the online sharing and possession of child pornography." The police release (seen below) also states that part of the charges against Romanek "relates to the possession of more than 20 images of child pornography." Romanek was released last Thursday on $20,000 personal recognizance bond.
A condition of his release is that he's not allowed access to the Internet, reports Aaron Sagers on paranormalpopculture.com, who also acquired and provided the Loveland police press release to The Huffington Post.
While this case revolves around child pornography allegations, it's hard to imagine that Romanek's well-publicized involvement with UFOs and alleged alien abductions won't find its way into the courtroom, as well.
