Possible Child Pornography.
On September 5, 2017 at approximately 12:15 p.m., Deputy McBride was contacted by the father of a juvenile female at the Hempstead County Sheriff's Office in reference to theft and child pornography.
The father stated he was at home when his step daughter, brought a phone to him with a video of what appeared to be a child between the ages of 4 and 8. The video appeared to be taken from outside of the bathroom window and had the young child undressed. The father stated there were multiple videos and pictures of juveniles without clothes on the phone. The father stated his step-daughter found the phone in the garage and said it belonged to an individual whom she knew.
The phone was turned into Deputy McBride and will be examined to determine what is on the phone and the results of the investigation will be turned over to the Prosecuting Attorney.
