WARRENSBURG — The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control announced the arrest of Ronald John Booker, 39, Warrensburg, on Wednesday, June 24, on charges of promoting child pornography.

The highway patrol states the arrest was the result of an investigation conducted by members of the Division of Drug and Crime Control’s Digital Forensics Investigative Unit.

The Warrensburg Police Department and the Missouri Digital Forensic Center assisted the patrol.

On June 24, MSHP information states investigators executed a search warrant at Booker’s residence located on Anderson Street, in Warrensburg.

As a result of the search, investigators seized child pornography and computer equipment.

Booker was arrested and transported to the Johnson County Jail.

The Johnson County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office formally charged Booker with three counts of promoting child pornography.

Booker’s bond was set at $35,000.

The patrol states the charges are mere accusations and are not evidence of guilt.

The patrol states evidence in support of these charges must be presented before a court of competent jurisdiction whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
