HOUSTON -

Two northwest Harris County roommates face child pornography charges.

Harris County Precinct 4 deputy constables said they raided a home where Christopher Duncan, 38, and William Burklund, 20, live on Aug. 17.  Investigators said they found several digital storage media devices in the home at an apartment complex on Seattle Slew Drive in Jersey Village.

The devices contained hundreds of sexually-explicit pictures and videos of young boys, investigators said.

Detectives said they began investigating the men in June. Undercover officers were trolling the Internet and got a hit on illegal file sharing, officials said. They tracked the men down through their Internet service provider address, investigators said.

Deputy constables said Duncan confessed to searching for and downloading the images and videos. Detectives said Burklund told them he knew about the files and even looked at some of the images out of curiosity, but he did not do anything to alert authorities.

Duncan faces three charges of possession of child pornography. He has not been arrested. Burklund faces two of the same charges.
