A Moorhead man who was 10 years old when he was featured on a network television show about home makeovers has been charged with possession of child pornography. Moorhead police began investigating 20-year-old Garrett Grommesh last year after the Minnesota BCA received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Swenson says the case involves a “significant amount of material” and says that more than 100 images of child porn have been identified. In 2010, Grommesh and his family were featured on the TV show “Extreme Makeover Home Edition.” Swenson says Grommesh has not been arrested. A court appearance is scheduled in December.
Grommesh’s parents, Bill and Adair issued a prepared statement:
“We were notified today about the allegations surrounding Garrett. This was devastating news to our family, and we understand some individuals may be concerned about the nature of the allegations. We felt it was important to advise you that we are taking these allegations very seriously. Further, we would please ask that any interested parties please allow these allegations to be handled by the court system, as this is a complex situation for a multitude of reasons.
