Walbridge home raided as part of statewide child porn investigation


COLUMBUS -- State law enforcement agents executed a search warrant today at a Walbridge home in a statewide child porn investigation, authorities said.

The morning raid was part one of four raids today across the state as part of a multi-jurisdictional effort to stop the spread of child pornography, said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine during a news conference in Columbus.

Four individuals were targeted in the raids, with three arrested and facing criminal prosecution, and one being questioned, Mr. DeWine said. Their names were not released.

Agents were unaware of any local children victimized by the individuals in question, according to the the attorney general's office. Mr. DeWine noted that the victims were 11 years old or younger.
