BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A Buffalo man is accused of having child pornography, after a store manager complained about disturbing incidents involving the man. The Erie County Sheriff’s Office says 33-year-old Christopher L. Fafara would frequently visit a store in the northtowns, take My Size Barbies out of their packages, remove their clothing and place them in sexually compromising positions in the store’s bathroom.
With surveillance video and discussions with other police agencies, it was determined that Fafara was the suspect. The sheriff’s office says he is suspected of doing the same thing in other stores, but those managers refused to press charges.
The sheriff’s office says Fafara was tracked down at his Fay Street home, where police allegedly found questionable images on his computer. The sheriff’s office says they received a search warrant and seized Fafara’s computer.
Fafara is facing possession of child pornography charges. Fafara is also charged with criminal mischief with intent to damage property, because the northtowns store manager decided to press charges. He was arraigned in Buffalo City Court and was released on his own recognizance.
