Police arrested Johnny Hunt, on a charge of child exploitation.
Bloomington Police detectives received a tip on March 6 of several child pornographic images on a third-party website. A court order was issued to identify the suspect and traced the information to an address at 306 West Second Street.
Detectives obtained a search warrant on March 8 for Hunt’s home and found a flash drive with multiple images of child pornography involving a child younger than the age of 12.
