33-year-old facing charges in connection to possessing child pornography

ELDRED TWP., Pa. - An Eldred Township man was arrested Thursday in connection with possessing and disseminating child pornography.

Detectives say they found a computer on a peer-to-peer file sharing network, which offered to share videos of child pornography with other users. They included children as young as toddlers being sexually abused by adults. 

Thursday morning, police served a search warrant at 33-year-old Justin Reynolds' home on Silver Spring Boulevard. Investigators discovered his laptop, which contained evidence of the downloading and sharing of child pornography, according to a news release from the Monroe County District Attorney's office. 

Reynolds admitted to downloading child pornography and said he would delete the files after viewing them, because he knew it "was wrong."

Reynolds is facing charges of both possessing and disseminating child pornography and the criminal use of a communication facility.

His tentative preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 16.
