CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (KSWB) -- An ex-Camp Pendleton Marine suspected of sending and receiving child pornography while in Escondido was at large Dec. 17, with authorities seeking the public's help finding him.
Eric Stiegelmeyer, 24, is wanted for alleged possession and transmission of child porn. A federal warrant was issued for his arrest earlier this year, according to Riverside Police Officer Ryan Railsback.
Railsback said Steigelmeyer allegedly dropped out of sight immediately after he was discharged from the Marines and the warrant was issued for his arrest.
The suspect allegedly engaged in the distribution of child porn via the internet. Escondido police are also searching for him as part of a separate investigation “for the same type of criminal activity,” Railsback said.
