Overland, Mo. (KMOV) – The Overland Police Department is currently investigating a case involving the possession of child pornography and believes there may be more victims in the area.

Ronald Lee Mills, of the 2800 block of Poe, is currently in custody for possession of child pornography and is being held on bond.  Police state that there is reason to believe other children have visited Mills at his residence.

Police say a computer repairman was fixing Mills' computer when he found the pictures and alerted police.

Neighbors say Mills has lived on their street for years.  Police say they have identified some of the children in the pictures, who are anywhere from 3 to 11 years old, as neighborhood kids.

“There's a sense there might be something different about him. He had lived there for a while.  He had a family.  I know a daughter, I think a son, grandchildren," said Susie Kilian, neighbor.

"We’re trying to locate any other victims that might be out there and make sure they're being protected," said Chief Michael Laws, Overland Police.

Anyone who knows of a child who may have had contact with Mills or has information is urged to call Detective Steve Hurst at 314-428-4760 or 314-428-1221.
