Local man finds possible child porn in tablet bought at pawn shop

An Indianapolis man got more than he bargained for when he picked up a tablet at a pawn shop.

James Eaker bought the Kindle Fire for his 18-year-old daughter, Jessica, as a Christmas gift. She opened it only to find multiple pornographic pictures and home videos involving what looks like a young girl.

“She started crying and hollering at me,” said Eaker. “I went over there and grabbed it from her. I looked at it and said, ‘Oh my God. What is happening?’ They made me so sick. I didn’t even want to look.”

Eaker immediately called Fox 59 and police. Detectives took the tablet in as evidence as they try to look into its former owner.

Jim has a message for anyone buying second-hand electronics.

“If you get something that’s old or used, please check yourself before you give it to a child,” he said. “I ruined my little girl’s Christmas on that end.”

Jim was given a new Kindle, but he hopes others would do the same thing he did if they find something suspicious.

“I just didn’t want it dropped. I didn’t want them to say, ‘Well, just delete this.’ That’s what we need to do.”

Police have not made any arrests. Initially, investigators are unable to determine the female’s age. They’ll need to do a thorough examination of the pictures and videos before charges, if any, are made.
