Child Porn Case Turns into Drug Raid

Last updated on Thursday, August 30, 2012

(VINCENNES) - A joint investigation by local and state police in southern Indiana leads to a much bigger arrest.

Mike Grant, of WTHI reports, police in Vincennes say officers investigating a case of child pornography at a home in the 600 block of North 6th Street found a lot more there.

Officers say the arrest of the resident also led them to a methamphetamine operation.

Police spent hours bringing meth materials and numerous one pot meth labs out of the house.

Police arrest 25-year-old Anthony Childers on charges of Possession of Child Pornography and Manufacturing Meth.

Officers also arrested 32-year-old Jennifer Abel of Vincennes for Manufacturing Meth.

Police say they weren't surprised to find drugs, but officers say they had never seen that many one pot meth labs in a single raid.

Officers say they began the investigation after Childers pawned a computer.

Someone at the pawn shop noticed the computer had child pornography images on it and contacted city police.

Local officers then turned the computer over to the State Police and the Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children Test Force found hundreds of images of child pornography.

Both Childers and Able are being held in the Knox County Jail.
