Eastman reports child porn on computer, employee arrested

staff report • May 3, 2013 at 12:40 PM

Child pornography allegedly discovered on the computer of an Eastman Chemical Company employee has prompted the indictment and arrest of a Kingsport man.

The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office reports Roger Kelvin Fink, 49, of 413 Colonial Heights Road, was arrested Thursday night at his home. Police say he was previously indicted by a Sullivan County grand jury on the charge of sexual exploitation of a minor, a class B felony.

Fink has been released from the Sullivan County jail in Blountville after posting $50,000 bond.

Representatives of Eastman Chemical Company allegedly alerted officials to the alleged images of child pornography on Fink's computer. Police say that during Fink's Thursday arrest a search warrant was executed at his residence, with several electronic items seized from the home.

A statement from the Sheriff's Office says further details may be released as investigators proceed with their case.

On Friday afternoon Eastman Spokeswoman Betty Payne confirmed Fink is no longer employed by the company. Payne said he previously worked in procurement.
