Child porn arrest in Monroe County


STROUD TWP - A lengthy investigation led to the arrest of Christopher Loysen, 20, of Stroud Township.

Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division of the Monroe County Office of the District Attorney received information in August from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children concerning a Google account that was being used to store child pornography. 

Investigation eventually revealed that Loysen had been trading photographs and videos of child pornography, some depicting children as young as six years old, via email with multiple other people around the world.  In several of those emails Loysen offered to pay an individual to photograph the other person’s daughters, ages 10, 12, and 14, engaged in sex acts and then email those photographs to him. 

Loysen surrendered to detectives at the office of the Criminal Investigations Division and admitted to sending and receiving child pornography via email. He is charged with numerous felony offenses, including soliciting the production of child pornography, possessing and disseminating child pornography, and attempted unlawful contact with a minor.  He is the Monroe County Correctional Facility in lieu of $15,000 bail.
