STEUBEN COUNTY – On Friday detectives with the Indiana State Police, Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) arrested a Steuben County man on charges of possession of child pornography.
The investigation began after the Indiana State Police ICAC received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) which led to a search warrant being issued for a residence in the 600 block of South CR600 West, Angola. That search was executed by the Indiana State Police with assistance from the Department of Homeland Security (HSI), and the Angola Police Department ICAC.
As a result of the investigation, the Steuben County Prosecutor requested and was granted an arrest warrant for 33-year-old Corey Spangler of Angola. Spangler was arrested at his place of employment without incident, and was transported to the Steuben County Jail on the following eight preliminary charges:
Count 1: Possession of Child Pornography depicting bestiality, Level 5 Felony
Counts 2-8: Possession of Child Pornography of a person under 18, Level 5 Felony
Spangler will be incarcerated pending his initial appearance in the Steuben County Courts.
The Indiana State Police ICAC was assisted in this apprehension by ISP Sgt. Andy Smith, M/Trp. Kody Buell, Department of Homeland Security, Angola Police Department, and the Steuben County Sheriff’s Department.
