Cellphone left on bar leads to child porn arrest

A cell phone left on a bar led to a Blasdell man’s arrest on child porn charges.

Brian Mackinnon, 39, left his phone at a bar in the village in August 2015. Those who found it discovered it contained child porn.

The phone was turned over to authorities, who, after a long investigation, charged Mackinnon with possession of a sexual performance of a child under 16, a Class E felony.

Mackinnon pleaded guilty when he was arraigned.

As part of a condition of his plea, he will have to register as a sex offender.
