The shocked neighbour went to the police after finding the USB stick, which had been left behind in a washing machine in the communal laundry room. A quick scan of the contents brought up holiday photos of the officer's children, who the neighbour recognized, along with child pornographic videos.
But the forgetful officer will not face criminal charges, as a prosecutor was able to ascertain that the pornographic material consisted of evidence in an ongoing police investigation.
An internal disciplinary committee will decide whether to issue the officer with a warning or dock his wages.
