MARQUETTE — Remo Valentino Perry, 32, of Marquette, was arrested on charges of possession of child sexually abusive materials and using a computer to commit a crime, the Michigan State Police Computer Crimes Unit and Internet Crimes Against Child Task Force announced on Thursday.

Perry was arrested following an investigation that stemmed from a National Center for Missing and Exploited Children cyber tip.

As a result of the investigation, a search warrant of the suspect’s residence was conducted and multiple internet-capable devices and evidence were seized, officials said.

Perry was charged with four counts of child sexually abusive material-aggravated possession and four counts of using a computer to commit a crime.

He was arraigned in 96th District Court on May 7.

If convicted, Perry faces 10 years in prison for each count of the aggravated possession of child sexual abusive material and up to 10 years in prison for using a computer to commit a crime.

The MSP Computer Crimes Unit encourages parents to speak to their children about the safe use of the internet. It said there are many resources available to parents to help in keeping children safe online. Resources are found at www.missingkids.org.
