Boyds man charged with child pornography

E-mail this article \ Print this article

The FBI charged a Boyds man earlier this month with sending child pornography to an undercover agent in Florida.

Hugh Blair Stamper Jr., 64, is being held without bail by federal authorities. A federal judge in Baltimore issued an arrest warrant on Aug. 6. When FBI agents searched his home on Aug. 8, they "learned Stamper had inappropriate relations with a minor," the FBI said.

The Montgomery County Police Family Crimes Division is investigating the allegation.

No one returned calls to Stamper's home.

Because Stamper has been closely involved with children in his community through his church and other activities, the FBI and Montgomery County Police are looking for any information or concerns related to possible inappropriate contact Stamper may have had with other children.

Those with information or concerns should call the Montgomery County Police Family Crimes Division at 240-773-5400 or FBI Special Agent Michelle Velasquez at 410-265-8080.
