Man arrested on pornography charges

Acting on a tip from someone in the Atherton public library, police from Atherton and Redwood City on Oct. 30 arrested Thomas Willis Hemmenway, a Redwood City resident and registered sex offender, on charges "related to the control and possession of child pornography," according to an Atherton Police Department bulletin.

An investigation by the Atherton police began after a library patron called to report a man viewing child pornography on a computer available for use by the public, the bulletin said.

Police arrested Mr. Hemmenway at his residence in connection with a parole search and booked him into San Mateo County jail.
