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.¬†
