Burke Man Arrested For Fraud, Child Porn

At the Safeway pharmacy in Burke Centre, a clerk was handed a prescription that didn't look right. When the clerk attempted to call the doctor and found the number disconnected, police were called in. The incident led to the arrest of Steven T. Hildner, whom police charged with prescription fraud.

"There were charges filed in this case," said Fairfax County Police spokesperson Mary Anne Jennings.

A search warrant was issued on March 29 to search the home at 10000 block of Apple Wood Court in Burke. It led to the discovery of additional fraudulent prescriptions, leading to three charges of prescription fraud and one count of possession of a controlled substance against Hildner, Jennings said.

While at the home, police officers found suspected child pornography as well as evidence of a burglary that had occurred at a church on Twinbrook Road in the Fairfax area, police said.

"Numerous photographs were in plain view of Fairfax County Police officers serving a search warrant on the same residence for prescription fraud," said the Affidavit for Search Warrant. Officers found "numerous photographs of young prepubescent females engaged in various sex acts on adult males," the affidavit stated.

Property seized included blank prescriptions, two laptop computers, a printer, two manila folders of suspected child porn, two notebooks of pornographic material, eight zip disks and a scanner.

Detective Paul Alexander was called in and a search warrant was issued in relation to the child pornography. In addition to the prescription fraud charges, Hildner, who has another residence at 10700 block of Paynes Church Drive in Burke, was charged with five counts of possession of child pornography. He was also charged with burglary and grand larceny.
