A Murrieta man accused of having child pornography images on his computer was arrested by Temecula police Friday.

Sgt. Kevin McDonald of the Temecula Police Department stated in a news release that the images were discovered by a computer repair shop.

The Temecula business—where the man purportedly took his computer to be serviced—called to report the alleged images Thursday, according to the sergeant.

“This case was forwarded to Temecula police investigators for follow-up and they authored a search warrant for the suspect’s residence in Murrieta,” McDonald said.

At 3 p.m. Friday, Temecula officers served the warrant in the 23600 block of Sycamore Creek Avenue in Murrieta.

The suspected owner of the computer, Michael David Otten, 43, was taken into custody at that location on suspicion of felony possession of child pornography, according to McDonald.

Otten was booked at Southwest Detention Center near Murrieta.

Jail booking information such as a bail amount was not immediately available at publication time.

The name of the computer repair shop was not disclosed.

Anyone with further information regarding the investigation was asked to call Temecula police Investigator Carlos Topete at 951-696-3000. Tips may also be submitted anonymously through the Riverside County Sheriff Department’s online CrimeTips form.

Editor’s Note: The outcome of these allegations, as well as the facts, may change as the case progresses through the legal system. Not all details of each investigation are made public. All items are alleged to have occurred. There should be no assumption of guilt.

John, I know some of this, and yes he had started on me, but think that was just as he was arrested or some such thing. I do not understand someone who knows they obviously have a problem(s) who doesnt go out and get it. I saw him posting personal information on other people, their kids, schools, wives, their wives works, Doctors, EVERYTHING, right here on the post for everyone to read. I was shocked way back then that "Patch" didnt immediately get him out of here, and when they did seem to finally move it took forever. However, there might have been something they were involved with the police in catching Jeff doing this stuff right? I had an internet stalker a long time ago and I had to keep it going for about a month longer while they(FBI) investigated and actually watched this guy online themselves. They caught him, from VA, worked for the Government, Agriculture, was married with a few kids, did travel around so he could meet up with women, and he had gotten mad at me because I had no intention of meeting him. So then the stalking started. It was horrifying to say the least but he did do enough to get the FBI on him. He was a big supervisor with the Gov. and ended up getting demoted to a peon, had no access to cmputers anymore (yes he had used work computers), big drop in pay as in enough to lose his big ole mansion, his wife left him, he was off work for 4 months with no pay, and other things. Bottom line, you will get caught and when you do you get caught big time. The things he would say about others, like kids schools and stuff, that I saw, I would have been all over him like flies on ahh........well what he is a big pile of manure. Jeff, I dont know why you just dont stop, just stop. Ta duh!
Brenda January 21, 2014 at 06:31 PM
Jeff,,,,,,,,,,,,,,dont LOL, I am serious for your own benefit. People get some help on how to control themselves and are able to go back and apologize for things they have done and feel alot better about themselves and life in general. Its worth a shot. I know just an ole lady blowing hot air and in one ear and out the other.
Team Mom January 21, 2014 at 07:07 PM
My goodness! Talk about going off on a tangent. I did realize my naivete in thinking Jeff's comment about a computer repairman invading his customers' privacy by looking at the hard drive. Jeff was being facetious? My bad. All this other stuff you guys got going on, I 'm out. No idea what you're talking about, and not interested really.
Steve Newman January 21, 2014 at 07:14 PM
Team Mom- good call- porn of any kind is bad- but child porn is the worse Best of luck to you.
Brenda January 21, 2014 at 08:18 PM
This is so wierd as I can read notifications and what everyone types in my email but when I come here the message is not here. Like 6 are poof, gone!
John Smith January 21, 2014 at 08:19 PM
Steve Newman the odds that Kleiner can cause anything to happen legally are as great as the Chicago Bears playing in the Superbowl in two weeks...ZERO. Kleiner you psycho lying freak. Maybe you shouldn't have written emails or letters or contacted people via Facebook. It is so easily established that you are a psycho stalking lying freak Jeff. Your own words do it. I don't need to say a thing. Knowing that you are a psycho lying freak allows people to act in self defense and with great latitude. Jeff all your posts in the last two weeks entrenches you as a bigger moron than I ever thought you were. Sometimes when you win you lose dumb ass. Give an idiot enough rope and they will hang themselves. Who made the effort to get your address Jeff? Not me but it is all over the web like Steve Newman's wife's medical records. You are a little fat bitch Jeff and always will be. Try calling your family and friends Jeff maybe they can help you.
John Smith January 21, 2014 at 08:19 PM
Now jeff tell people how you contacted my friend BW, who you say I beat up...another lie. And told her you wanted to find me because I was wanted in Illinois in connection to the suicide of your nephew...Or tell people about all the restraining orders you claimed were filed on me but never were....Or all the fake police calls... Or the calls to my work that you made....Psycho stalker so easy to nail you for what you are.
John Smith January 21, 2014 at 08:20 PM
Brenda Jeff thinks it is cute to use the police and fake victimhood. But his past is full of psycho stalking. When a stalker writes fake stories about housing your kids and writes posts that refer to places close to where your kids live any Dad will go on defense and will expose the cockroach for what he is. Stalking scum.
John Smith January 21, 2014 at 08:20 PM
ROTFLMAO at the flagging by Jeff! The truth hurts Jeff don't it. Now Jeff tell people how you wrote about housing my ex and kids after my divorce. (Never happened) What kind of nut job does that Jeff?
John Smith January 21, 2014 at 08:22 PM
Brenda that is the stalker Jeff Kleiner running from the truth of his stalking and harassing behavior.
John Smith January 21, 2014 at 08:27 PM
Here are words that Jeff's family and close ex friends use to describe him: Sociopath. Nut job. Crazy. Psycho Pathological liar. Insane. Those close to you know and knew best Jeff didn't they? Along with all of Jeff's crazy actions it is easy to see why he needs a spotlight on his behavior. All psychos need a light on them to check their behavior.
Brenda January 21, 2014 at 08:35 PM
There they are most of them I think. I just don't get how he can continue to do this? Or would want to for that matter. I would be embarrassed like hell to show my face for getting into peoples lives I didnt even know and wrecking this havoc and for no reason, just nice people.
John Smith January 21, 2014 at 08:49 PM
Brenda and this psycho called the police on me and accused me of stupidity. When a psycho nut job says he housed my kids and also said all kinds of horrible things about them then a parent has the right to self defense. Cockroaches like Kleiner are easy to expose. His own words along with LIVE WITNESSES makes him look like a psycho moron.
Alek J Hidell January 21, 2014 at 08:59 PM
you guys are monotonous and obnoxious but Brenda making it a threesome? Wowie Zowie.
Brenda January 21, 2014 at 09:17 PM
Alek...........seriously stop with Brenda, you appear obsessed. I am hardly saying anything other then trying to get Jeff to just stop. I am certainly not obnoxious, mean or anything even close to it and you know that. I am always nice and if someone is badgering someone else I try to calm it down. GO BACK and count posts Alek, then also figure out where I am monotonous or obnoxious?
Robert Parks January 21, 2014 at 10:41 PM
Please leave OUT! The family in this and I ASK you to remember all citizens are innocent until proven guilty. When YOU talk about how children are raised maybe you should know a lot more about the circumstances before you post. All guilty people will be judged accordingly. Until then, you know nothing.
Brenda January 21, 2014 at 11:26 PM
Robert, you are correct. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. I have thought about the family members on both sides of this case.
Team Mom January 22, 2014 at 01:46 PM
Robert Parks....maybe more people need to worry more about the family and less about the jurisprudence. I care less about the creeper than I do about the family, and no matter what sort of Pollyanna argument you want to waste time with the children are in the middle of this and should be given the most concern.
Robert Parks January 22, 2014 at 02:09 PM
I know the family. I am thinking of them. I'm totally thrown by this.
Brenda January 22, 2014 at 02:58 PM
Well Robert, this would not be the first time that everyone, including friends and family are shocked, totally thrown by learning someone likes to look at child pornography. If you look at half the men in prison, or Atascadero State mental hospital you would never think they were child molesters, and/or killers. They all look mostly like regular smoo's. Police do not get a search warrant, arrest warrant THIS FAST unless there was some seriously BAD stuff on that computer. If it was even questionable it would have taken them time to investigate him, his computer then get the warrants and arrest him. Whatever they saw, got this guy immediately arrested and charged, so I can sit here and agree with you Robert that all are innocent until proven guilty, but it would 'SEEM" he has some serious cards stacked against him.
Team Mom January 22, 2014 at 03:11 PM
You're right Brenda, it would not be the first time. Just think about a century of Catholic Priests whose position in society gave them license to abuse and society chose not to believe it. I think of those children. It only takes one adult in the child's life to say NO! This will not happen to this child. I tried one time and the parents took the 5th and the system took the "innocent until proven guilty" and the child is left broken, unprotected, and bound for a life of suffering. No you don't leave the children out. You make the child the number one priority.
Jeff Kleiner January 22, 2014 at 05:02 PM
Brenda, you have no business telling me what to do. It's as if I would tell you not to be abusive to your grandchildren, the way you were to your own children? See. Anyone can create a lie, have no proof, and then spread rumors. Its one very sick and inferior man who wants control of people. He choses to pick on those disabled, women and children. So before you give anyone lessons, mind your own FING business. In the end the Bad Boy will be stopped legally.
Robert Parks January 22, 2014 at 05:02 PM
I understand & agree but when u know the kids, wife & even grandparents your heart breaks for them & wish there was a mistake. I will never EVER support child abuse or any abuse for that matter but the people around the abuse get their lives shattered & that is where my heart lies, with them.
Robert Parks January 22, 2014 at 05:05 PM
Things get misunderstood in chats like this & I do not want mine to be. After all I used my real name.
Team Mom January 22, 2014 at 05:25 PM
I know what you mean Robert. I'm heart broken too.
Steve Newman January 22, 2014 at 05:33 PM
Convict Klener- wow such a gentleman- mind your own fing business- the pot calling the kettle black. Brenda was only offering what many would consider advice for your mental state. And you want to point the lie finger- point it at yourself FUBAR- you are a habitual liar- and everybody, including the police know it. Run and hide toady. Now I remember where I have seen you- at Mr toads Wild ride at disneyland- so I guess you did work there. Have you renamed your wheelchair-the toadstool?
Steve Newman January 22, 2014 at 05:37 PM
Brenda- look out- now you have hurt swimmers feelings- boo hoo.
Brenda January 22, 2014 at 05:56 PM
Jeff, see exactly my point. Don't prove me right, but prove me wrong and not call names, or put out personal info on Steve, or anyone else. Thats all I am saying. Its wrong on so many counts and not something someone thinking in their right mind would do even if they were mad at someone. Even as horrible as you are to others, including me, I would not put you in the catagory as this man appears to be in, pedophile, and who all knows what else at this point. As you threaten me Jeff, for just trying to reason with you, I still worry that you are a walking timebomb to act this way and say the things that you do.
Brenda January 22, 2014 at 06:04 PM
Team Mom, if this man is indeed guilty of these charges, and so far just being charged the family and his friends have to be in turmoil that hopefully none of the rest of us ever have to live through. I feel so horrible for his wife and children. Whether he has 2,3, 5 kids I just cannot imagine them having to run from this story about their father all their lives and wondering Why, Why Why us. A wife, mother who thought her life is ok (we dont know that), husband, children, and then in the matter of one day her life explodes all around her. Trying to explain "something" to her children but not being able to tell the truth of course. I pray she is a good person, has a really close and sincere support group that will be able to push the issue of "him" to the side and concentrate all their efforts on helping her get through this long process. **I was going to give some defense over the use of the pictures of the small children on the computer by saying that possibly it had belonged to someone else prior. But the police with the help of the tech, and the police tech would be able to immediately see the "chain" of the pictures and who not only downloaded them, but when they looked at them and how frequently. I would GUESS, he had them password protected? I really cannot find any excuse he could use to get him out of this, or that he might be innocent, until he goes to court and we learn more. Until then, bless his wife and children during this time.
Robert Parks February 07, 2014 at 05:47 PM
She is a wonderful woman and has a great support system. She has me and everyone else who love them which are many. Thank you @Brenda for caring because I appreciate it very much.
