DUNCAN, Okla. – Today Agents from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI), assisted by officers from the Duncan Police Department, served a search warrant in the 200 block of North B Street in Duncan. As a result of the search warrant, 69-year-old Jeffrey Lee Birst was arrested and faces multiple child pornography charges.

The case originated in July when the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) forwarded a cyber tip they received from an electronic service provider to the OSBI. The OSBI Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit opened an investigation upon receiving the tip. Based on their investigation, Birst was arrested today without incident and booked into the Stephens County Jail.

Birst is charged with Possession of Child Pornography, Distribution of Child Pornography and Violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.
