(NEW ALBANY) – Over the past week, Indiana State Police arrested two Floyd County residents on child pornography charges after separate investigations led by the Indiana State Police Internet Crimes against Children task force (ICAC).
On Tuesday, February 25th, a New Albany man was arrested in a case that police began investigating in November of 2019.
Indiana State Police Investigators received a tip from the Federal Bureau of Investigations, leading officers from the Sellersburg ICAC Task Force to interview 27-year-old David Hilliker, of Green Valley Road in New Albany.
Officers also requested and were granted a search warrant for his residence based on information gathered. As a result of the investigation, Hilliker was arrested on felony charges of possession of child pornography and dissemination of child pornography. He was arrested without incident and is being held at the Floyd County Jail.
On Wednesday, February 19th ISP Sellersburg ICAC investigators served a search warrant at a New Albany residence on a separate and unrelated case.
The investigation on this case began in July of 2019 after investigators obtained information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
A juvenile male was arrested on a felony charge of possession of child pornography if he was charged as an adult.
Both investigations are ongoing.
