Halifax County man charged with distribution of child porn

A Halifax County man is behind bars after being charged with distributing child pornography, according to Corinne Geller, Virginia State Police public relations manager.

Thomas Dale Anderson, 39, of Halifax was charged by Virginia State Police High Tech Crimes special agents on one count of distribution of child pornography on Friday, Oct. 29, Geller said.

Anderson was taken into custody without incident and is being held at the Halifax Adult Detention Center, she added.

“Based on our undercover investigation into this matter, there is a possibility of more charges,” said First Sgt. R. C. Holland, Virginia State Police High Tech Crimes Division.

“We would ask anyone familiar with Anderson or anyone with information they would like to share with law enforcement concerning this investigation to contact the state police,” Holland added.

“The Halifax/South Boston Regional Narcotics and Gang Task Force assisted with the arrest,” Geller said. “And the office of the Halifax County Commonwealth’s Attorney will be prosecuting the case.”

Commonwealth’s Attorney Kim White said yesterday she couldn’t comment on evidence in an investigation of an open case.

“I anticipate additional charges, and the defendant is being held without bail,” said White.
