Magnolia Crossing Guard Arrested for Explicit Images of Minors

Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Magnolia Police Chief John Evans reported a borough man was arrested this morning for the possession and distribution of explicit images of minors.

Rudolph F. Kube, 80, was charged after detectives from the High Tech Crimes Unit of the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office executed a search warrant at approximately 6 a.m. on Thursday at his Magnolia home.

Detectives located several hard drives containing numerous images and videos of explicit images of minors.

Kube, who is a member of the Magnolia School District Board of Education and a crossing guard for Magnolia Middle School, was charged with one count each of possession of explicit images of minors and distribution of explicit images of minors.

The investigation began after detectives monitoring a peer-to-peer file-sharing program noticed videos of explicit images of minors were being downloaded from an IP address associated with Kube’s home. Detectives were also able to download videos of explicit images of minors from a shared folder associated with that IP address.

The Gloucester Township Police Department SWAT Team assisted in the execution of the search warrant.

Kube is among the two dozen people who have been charged this year by the High Tech Crimes Unit for crimes related to the possession and/or distribution of explicit images of minors.

His bail was set at $100,000 full cash.
