LONDONDERRY, NH — After a months-long investigation the Londonderry Police Department on April 18 arrested Richard Gale, 75, of Derry on three felony counts of possession of child pornography (NH RSA 649-A:3) and one felony count of distribution of child pornography (NH RSA 649-A:3-a).

This investigation began in May of 2018 when the Londonderry Police Department received a Cybertip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that led investigators to Gale.

The Londonderry Police Department and the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) conducted an investigation with the assistance of the Department of Homeland Security which ultimately resulted in Gale’s arrest. Gale resided in Londonderry during the time of this incident and the investigation.

Gale was released on an unsecured appearance bond and his court appearance is scheduled for May 3, 2019 at the Rockingham County Superior Court. Anyone with any further information
