GLENSIDE, Pa. - Police arrested a Glenside man after finding 45 images of child pornography on his cell phone.
James Wheelock, 50, is facing 45 counts of sexual abuse of children -- child pornography as well as criminal use of a communications facility.
Officials say a witness provided police with two images taken from Wheelock's cellphone, which depicted children under the age of 18 engaged in sexual acts and poses.
A search warrant was then executed at Wheelock's residence where electronic devices were seized. After examination, police found 45 images of child pornography in addition to messages between Wheelock and another person on his cell phone. Officials say the messages revealed the two spoke about wanting to sexually assault a 7-year-old child and 8-month-old baby.
Wheelock was arrested Nov. 22 with bail set at $100,000. He currently remains in the Montgomery County Correctional Facility unable to post bail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 5.
