Child porn arrest in Monroe County


SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP –A Smithfield Township man was arrested by County Detectives on Wednesday and charged with 200 counts of possessing child pornography.

In June of this year, detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division (CID) of the Monroe County Office of the District Attorney located a computer on an online peer-to-peer file sharing network that was downloading child pornography.  Investigators traced that computer back to the home of Jason Jones, 34, on Route 447 just outside of East Stroudsburg Borough.

Armed with a search warrant, County Detectives, along with deputies from the Monroe County Office of the Sheriff and Troopers from the Pennsylvania State Police, raided the Jones’ home finding more than 68,000 images and videos of child pornography, some depicting children as young as six years old engaged in sex acts.

Jones was arraigned and placed in the Monroe County Correctional Facility in lieu of $50,000 bail.
