The cyber tips and subsequent investigation ultimately led to the arrest of 26-year-old Brennan D. Winkler on one felony count of child exploitation, 20 felony counts of possession of child pornography, one felony count of possession of meth, and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Master Trooper/Detective Kevin Getz and Trooper Robert Whyte were assisted by Troopers Sam Gillespie and Ben Burris along with representatives from the Lawrence County Prosecutors Office and Indiana Department of Child Services.
