The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office says it arrested Tim Thorpe of Malad on Thursday, Oct. 20th after reports a man was looking at Child Pornography at the Oneida County Library.
An investigation was started where evidence including the computer being used was seized for analysis. As the investigation progressed the Tri-County Sheriff’s Investigators were asked to take over because of possible conflicts with employees and because the library is a county facility.
Tri-County Investigators found enough evidence to make an arrest for felony Child-Sexual Exploitation of by Willfully Possessing or Accessing Sexually Exploitative Material.
Tri-County Sheriff’s Association and Homeland Security are still investigating and will report back to what was found on the computer seized.
Thorpe is currently out on bond, his next court date is set for Nov. 3rd.
