FAIRFIELD — Police, alerted about a man photographing children in the area of Dana Drive, arrested a Fairfield resident this week on suspicion of annoying children under 18 and possessing child pornography after detectives said they located hundreds of downloaded pornographic images within the man’s apartment.

Eric Schroeder, 53, was first arrested Monday after patrol officers responded to the 1200 block of Dana Drive and spoke with him.

Based upon the preliminary investigation, the man was arrested for allegedly annoying children under 18 years old, police said. Detectives responded to the scene and members of the Fairfield Police Department’s Family Violence Unit executed a search warrant on the man’s apartment, police said.

Detectives said they found hundreds of downloaded images of child pornography. Schroeder was also arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography and duplication of child pornography. He had no previous criminal history, police said.

This case illustrates how concerned residents within the community can assist Fairfield police with removing criminals from the community, police said, noting that the department often relies upon observant residents who are willing to provide information to police to make the community safer.

This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about Schroeder is asked to call the Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit at 428-7600, the 24-hour tip line at 428-7345 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867. Callers may remain anonymous.

Reach Ryan McCarthy at 427-6935 or rmccarthy@dailyrepublic.net.

    You should have seen Channel 3 KCRA's report on this story. The alleged perp perv bailed and went back to his low rent hovel. Those neighbors told the reporter how Schroder was dragged out naked as the women and children all gawked. I imagine by now, they all have torches and pitchforks and are surrounding his ''residence''. It all looked like a circus. The residents there themselves all look awful. What a yucky place! The accused is now persona non grata and could be attacked. He would propably be safer if he remained in police custody.

    Get the rope. No reason to let these individuals live a comfy life on tax payer dollars, only to be released as a pervert later.

    Just askin' but is it OK if we have due process and convene a trial with a jury first before a mob lynches the accused?
