A special San Jose police unit helped nab four men suspected of possessing child pornography. They are: Mark Kreifels, Joseph Pizzella, Mark Ford and Keith Keuscher.

The Internet Crimes Against Children task force used a van with a mobile forensics lab to go to the suspects' homes and quickly search their computers and portable hard drives in minutes. It's a search that used to take months. They found videos containing disturbing images of preschool age children.

"These videos are not of 16 or 17-year-old 'Girls Gone Wild.' These are prepubescent children. These are children from 3, to 4, 5 years old engaged in sexual intercourse with adults," said Sgt. Fred Lombardo from the San Jose Police Internet Crime Taskforce.

Experts say suspects commonly use programs designed to illegally download music and movies to trade images and videos of child pornography.
