Former CMC worker arrested for child porn, filming women

Man possessed 13,000 videos of women seemingly recorded without their knowledge

Posted

A former employee of the Colorado Mountain Club has been arrested on several charges related to filming women without their knowledge and uploading the footage to porn sites, including once uploading such a video of a coworker at CMC.

According to a Golden Police press release, Golden Police first responded to the mountain club’s offices at 710 10th Street after receiving a report that a social media account belonging to the organization had been hacked to display a link to a video on a porn website.

The video that was linked showed a woman who did not appear to have knowledge she was being recorded. After an initial investigation, detectives identified the alleged female victim as well as the suspected hacker, 39-year-old Chun Min Chiang. Chang is a former CMC employee and police also determined that he is a registered sex offender.

In December, a team of investigators from Golden Police and other agencies served a search warrant at Chiang’s residence.

Investigators seized computers, cell phones and various other digital storage devices containing a total of over 40 terabytes of videos and photos, the release said. Processing of the evidence recovered videos uploaded to various porn websites and over 200 images and videos of child pornography and exploitation.

Detectives also recovered more than 13,000 videos appearing to show women being recorded without their knowledge in restrooms, fitting rooms and other locations. Some of the videos contained footage of women being filmed “up their skirts.”

On Wednesday, March 17, officers with Golden Police Criminal Investigations and Special Enforcement team located Chiang in Wisconsin. Investigators with the Waukesha, Wisconsin police and the U.S. Marshall’s Office arrested Chiang on a warrant relating to the now six-month-long investigation. The release states that investigation has identified

Chiang was booked into the Waukesha County Jail where he is awaiting extradition back to Colorado on a warrant for multiple charges. Those charges include, but are not limited to, second-degree burglary, three counts of stalking, eight counts of invasion of privacy-sexual gratification, four counts of posting private image for harassment, sexual exploitation of a child, and computer crime - unauthorized access.  The charges are merely an accusation.  Mr. Chiang is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

Anyone with additional information relating to Chiang of the investigation is asked to call the Golden Police tip line at 303-384-8034.
