Men Arrested for Child Pornography Felonies Mug Shots Attached 

Sugar Land, Texas – The Sugar Land Police Department in conjunction with the Houston Metro Internet Crimes Against Children's Task Force recently arrested two men for possession of child pornography. 

A local computer repair shop contacted SLPD after possible child pornography was located on a customer’s computer.  Detectives obtained a search warrant, and a forensic examination of the computer confirmed the child pornography files. 

Samuel McCord Sullivan, 66, of Sugar Land, was arrested on Oct. 6 and charged with one count of possession of child pornography.  Sullivan, a self-employed certified public accountant, was transported to the Fort Bend County jail on a $60,000 bond.

In an unrelated case, an undercover SLPD cyber investigation led to the identification of another Sugar Land man using an online file-sharing program for child pornography.  A search warrant for his house was obtained, and images of child pornography were located on his computer.

Richard S. Landrum, 68, a retired geologist, was arrested on Oct. 5 and charged with possession of child pornography. 

A forensic examination will be completed on Landrum's computer, and additional charges are expected.  Landrum was taken to the Fort Bend County jail on a $60,000 bond.
