Authorities have been searching since 1997 for a local man suspected of marketing child pornography through his Tucson-based company.
Now “America’s Most Wanted” fugitive-hunting television program will air a segment Saturday, according to a news statement released by the show.
David B. Creamer was charged in a 38-page indictment by a federal grand jury in June 1997. The counts include child pornography, distribution of obscene material and tax evasion, according to Tucson Citizen archives.
Archives also show:
• During the Creamer investigation, federal authorities seized more that $118,000, a Cessna airplane, a 19-foot boat and 10,500 from his business, The Profit Group.
• The business produced more than 100,000 CDs between 1992 and 1995.
• The company allegedly made master CDs containing graphics and test files of child pornography and obscene materials, that people could order copies of worldwide through computer magazines and bulletin boards.
• The indictment accuses Creamer of producing the first series of CDs by “personally choosing sexually explicit computer image files from material he obtained from a source in California.”
• Also quoted from the indictment: Besides depicting minors engaged in sexual conduct, the pictures showed sadomasochistic conduct and bestiality.
• It said Creamer arranged for companies in the United States and Denmark to replicate CDs from master copies.
• The Profit Group advertised in computer-oriented magazines, on its own computer bulletin board and through mailed fliers, according to the indictment.
When the charges against Creamer came out, “he hit the road,” said the “America’s Most Wanted” statement.
“Now the accused pervert has earned a place on both the United States Marshals’ Top 15 list and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Top 10 List” of fugitives, spokespeople at “America’s Most Wanted” said.
