Zack Perry, a Muskogee firefighter and clown, is charged in Muskogee County District Court with aggravated possession of child pornography, publishing, distributing or participating in obscene material, child sexual exploitation and crimes against nature, according to documents filed with the case.
Investigators are still going through electronics owned by Perry and seized when police served a search warrant at his house, but even though they’re a quarter of the way through the search, they’ve found more than 1,300 images containing child pornography, a source inside the investigation told MuskogeeNOW.com.
In addition, investigators found a video of Perry, an unidentified female adult and Perry’s Rottweiler having sex. Perry’s face does not appear in the video, but he was identified by officers who could identify the dog and the residence where Perry lives and the video was recorded, they said.
In addition, Perry is charged with child sexual exploitation for allegedly asking a Muskogee woman he knew online to take naked pictures of her preteen daughter and send them to him. The woman went to police, which is how Perry was caught, the source said.
He faces a sounding docket at 10 a.m. on Feb. 2.
UPDATE: Perry, who had been placed on administrative leave, resigned from the fire department after he was arrested.
