The Computer Crimes Section detectives arrested a 45-year-old man on Sept. 2 for possession of child pornography. Suffolk police say Robert Allen of Centerreach used the Yahoo screen name Long_Island_Guy44 and chatted online with an undercover detective from the Monroe County Sheriffs Department that he believed to be a 14-year-old girl.

The conversations were sexually explicit and Allen chatted about meeting the girl for sex. Allen also chatted about other children that he was abusing and a group of adults that he associated with that also sexually abused children, cops say. Allen also masturbated via live web cam for the “girl.” Suffolk County police executed a search warrant at Allen’s home on Aug. 18 and seized several computers, a webcam and assorted peripherals.

The investigation into the identification of potential targets or victims of Allen is continuing.
