East Stroudsburg man arrested for child porn

EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. - A Monroe County man is behind bars on child pornography charges.

Police say Erik Decker, 21, of East Stroudsburg, had 49 photos of child porn on his laptop, and shared at least one of them on an online chat site.

Police said they got a tip in April that someone uploaded and shared a photo of a girl involved in a sex act on Chatstep.com.

The district attorney's office and Stroud Area Regional police traced the photo to Decker.

After a search of his home, computers and cell phones, police found 49 files of child pornography of kids as young as five engaged in sex acts with adults, police said.

Decker was arrested Monday. He is being held in Monroe County jail on $1,000 bail.
