Moorhead man known for appearing on network TV show accused of possessing child pornography
MOORHEAD, Minn. (KVRR) – A Moorhead man who was 10 years old when he was featured on a network television show about home makeovers has been charged with possession of child pornography.
Captain Deric Swenson says Moorhead police began investigating 20 year-old Garrett Grommesh last year after the Minnesota BCA received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Swenson says the case involves a “significant amount of material” and says that more than 100 images of child porn have been identified.
In 2010, Grommesh and his family were featured on an episode of the TV show “Extreme Makeover Home Edition.”
Swenson says Grommesh has not been arrested. A court appearance is scheduled in December.
