CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — A Clearfield County man is in jail after state police say child pornography was found after a search of his phone, according to charges filed.
State police said the investigation into Justin Tipton, 24, of Luthersburg, started with a report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children after several tips about the uploading of child pornography, including over Facebook.
Another site, MeetMe, reported a chat conversation where Tipton allegedly talked about liking minor children with another user.
A search warrant was executed at Tipton’s home in late September and on Friday, Tipton was charged with felony child pornography and criminal use of a communication facility charges.
