A Westmoreland County man, who was already facing child pornography charges, is now facing additional charges as police continue to investigate the case.
The 36 year old suspect was originally caught in a sting by the state’s Child Predator Unit as it investigated an online network which facilitated the exchange of child pornography. After being identified and located in connection with the investigation, the suspect was allegedly found to have a remote control system in his house, which he used to activate a webcam in the room of a 15 year old girl who lived with him. Police say that he used the webcam to record the girl undressing.
After searching the man’s computer, police allegedly found about 100 child porn videos, which resulted in additional charges. They also found evidence that the man was secretly recording the girl who lived with him. His relationship to her has not been revealed.
The man is being held on $150,000 bond.
