INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – An Indianapolis man was arrested on child porn and child exploitation charges Tuesday morning.

Indiana State Police say they discovered the child porn after an investigation by the Indiana Crimes Against Children Task Force led them to serve a search warrant at the home of 53-year-old Dale Young on N. Harbison Ave.

During the search, officers seized a desktop tower, a laptop, a USB thumb drive, two digital cameras with SD cards, two flip phones, one smart phone, printed photos of child porn and several CDs, according to a probable cause affidavit. During an examination of objects, authorities found images depicting children under the age of 18 in sexually suggestive poses, the affidavit says.

Young was taken into custody after the discovery and transported to the Marion County Jail. He’s being charged with five counts of child porn, a level 5 felony, and child exploitation, a level 4 felony.
