Whitley County, IN - Earlier this morning, detectives with the Indiana State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICACTF) arrested a Whitley County man on alleged charges of possession of child pornography.
On April 24, 2020, the Indiana State Police ICACTF received a Cyber Tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). This tip ultimately led to a search warrant being served at the residence at 105 East Market Street in South Whitley, IN, by the Indiana State Police (ISP), with assistance from the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department and the South Whitley Police Department.
As a result of this investigation, Michael D. Russell, 39, of South Whitley was arrested at approximately 8:30am this morning and transported to the Whitley County Jail, where he was booked into custody on preliminary criminal charges. He remains held pending an initial hearing on the matter.
