*** PRESS RELEASE *** April 22, 2018: Over the past several months investigators with the Special Victims Unit of the Utah County Sheriff's Office began investigating a case where videos and images of child pornography were being downloaded to a computer at a home in Payson. They were assisted in this case by Homeland Security Investigations and the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce. Based on information investigators collected they obtained a search warrant for a home in Payson, in Utah County. At around 7:00 AM today they executed the search warrant at that home. They found evidence which included multiple videos depicting adult males raping and sexually assaulting young girls and boys ranging in age from infants just a few months old to pre-pubescent. The home owner, Brian Wayne Raade (Pronounced Ray-dee), age 32, admitted to investigators that he has been downloading child pornography weekly, specifically involving videos depicting infants being raped and otherwise sexually assaulted, for several years. Raade was arrested and booked into the Utah County Jail on 10 counts of 2nd degree felony sexual exploitation of a minor. Bail for Raade has been set at $50,000.00 Cash Only.

During the investigation Detectives learned that a man living in Raade's home, Scott David Leinbach, age 56, also of Payson, was in possession of numerous firearms, knives, swords, and spears. Leinbach was also in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was not booked into jail but charges of possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person and drug related charges will be filed. He will face five 3rd degree felony charges of possession of a dangerous weapon by a category II restricted person for the firearms. He will also face multiple class A misdemeanor charges of possession of a dangerous weapon by a category II restricted person for being in possession of the knives, swords, and the spear. Leinbach will also face charges related to being in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Leinbach is considered a category II restricted person because he has been convicted multiple times for felony charges and because he is an unlawful user of a controlled substance.
