FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM)- A Springdale man was booked into the Washington County Detention Center Monday (April 20) on suspicion of possession of sexually explicit conduct involving a child, according to jail records.

Joshua Glen Box, 32, was arrested following an investigation by the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, according to an arrest warrant filed on April 10.

In June 2013, the ICAC Task Force identified a computer located at a residence on Chadwick Street in Springdale that was offering to share child pornography using an internet filed sharing program, the warrant states. After executing a search warrant, investigators determined Box was engaged in the possession and distribution of child pornography, according to the warrant.

Box admitted to officers that he had been downloading child pornography since he was 15 years old, the warrant states.

The ICAC Task Force conducted a forensic examination of Box’s computer and computer-related items and found approximately 2,500 images and 450 videos of child pornography, according to the warrant.

Box was released on $2,500 bond and his next court date is scheduled for May 18, according to jail records.

      HE is not an “IT”, HE is a person with a deformity he can’t help. Yes he commited a crime and yes he deserves to be punished for it but resorting to public bullying and juvenile name calling only makes YOU look bad. Try sticking to comments that actually pertain to the story.

    to Rita, thank you, and to Carolyn, josh has a family who was not involved in this that has to hear all the ugly bashing, he was ashamed of what he had done and so he tried to commit suicide by shooting himself, it only resulted in shooting his face off, the have repaired it the best they can and so this is how he will be for the rest of his life, he is blind in one eye and can only barely see out of the other, he will never be able to eat food again, I am not asking for sympathy for him, only that people don’t talk ugly words that his family has to read and hear

    This can’t be true! all he had to do was Delete his emails! and photo’s, at least that’s what Fort Smith Police Dept. says. once they are deleted they can’t be retrieved. Isn’t that Correct Chief! isn’t that what you said when an Attorney tried to FOI the police department’s emails, when you illegally fired those Officers for telling the truth!.
