Alleged Pedophiles Arrested On Child Pornography Charges After Being Caught In A ‘Jam’ At Rite Aid

Two alleged pedophiles are behind bars for their recent debacle that took place at a Rite Aid store. According to Penn Live, the two men — identified as Timothy M. Rissmiller, 43, and John Leon Gilbert III, visited a Rite Aid in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to print photos at the store’s self-service printing machine. However, the photos they needed to print caused Rite Aid employees to contact local authorities immediately.

The two men attempted to print out inappropriate photos of little girls who appeared to range from 10- to 12-years in age. Rissmiller and Gilbert reportedly requested double prints of the photos but their plans were thwarted when the printer jammed before the photos were printed. One of the men notified an employee about the printer and said he’d be back shortly, but never returned. The employee checked the machine shortly after the men complained about it being broken.

However, what they didn’t know was that the printer began working again shortly after their departure. In most cases, a printing problem won’t necessarily cancel the printing job in the queue. Once the printer is fixed, it picks up right where it left off unless the previous printing jobs were manually canceled. Apparently, Rissmiller and Gilbert were unaware because the employee discovered the photos, reports Opposing Views.

According to the criminal report, one of the photos captured a young girl nude in a swimming pool while another photo captured a different nude girl with her legs open facing the camera. The employees immediately removed the photos and notified store managers who contacted the local authorities. The photos and surveillance footage were turned over to local authorities. The following day, both Rissmiller and Gilbert were arrested.

Both men have been charged with one count of possession of child pornography and conspiracy possession of child pornography. Penn Live reports they are currently being held in the Dauphin County Prison in lieu of a $100,000 bail.
