Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester man is facing charges after a search of his home turned up thousands of images of child pornography.

According to the criminal complaint filed against 36-year-old Gary Baker, officers from the La Crescent and Rochester Police departments searched his northwest home in May 2020.

The search was connected to a criminal sexual conduct case in La Crescent. The complaint says the child victim in the case “disclosed being filmed by Baker.”

The search of his home led to the discovery of a digital memory card that contained nearly 11,000 images of child pornography. They included images of girls ranging in age from 8 to 15.

Baker has been ordered to make his first court appearance next month.
