Massachusetts high school coach arrested on two counts of possession of child pornography



According to Dave Procopio of Massachusetts State Police, on Tuesday, the Massachusetts State Police Cyber Crime Unit arrested a Massachusetts man after locating numerous images depicting child sexual exploitation on multiple electronic devices used by the suspect. The devices were located in the suspect’s home during execution of a court-authorized search warrant.

44-year-old Ryan Cook, a lacrosse coach at Wellesley High School, was placed under arrest for two counts of possession of child pornography and transported to State Police-Framingham, where he was booked.

The images of child sexual abuse material were located during an on-scene forensic preview of Cook’s devices, which were seized pursuant to the warrant.

The investigation by State Police is ongoing; other potential charges may be sought pending the results of a more complete forensic examination of the seized devices in a laboratory setting.

The State Police investigation was opened after a tip provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
