HANOVER, VA –The FBI raided a Hanover County home in search of child porn, only to discover they'd raided the wrong house.

Federal investigators targeted the Mechanicsville home after discovering child porn was being downloaded to computers using the homeowner's internet service, according to federal court documents.

But after raiding the home in November and subsequently launching a full investigation, court documents show agents discovered the computers with the downloaded child porn didn't belong to the couple, but a neighbor.

David Edward Sleezer, of J David Lane, was arrested and charged with five counts of receiving and distributing child porn.

Agents raided Sleezer's home and confiscated a computer, several computer discs and a thumb drive, all containing images and videos of child porn, according to an indictment.

Sleezer was stealing his neighbor's unsecured Wi-Fi signal to commit the crimes, according to court documents.

Sleezer is due back in court the week of February 11.
