NAPPANEE — On Aug. 10, detectives with the Indiana State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force arrested an Elkhart County man on alleged charges of child pornography.
Esteban Robert Perez, 20, 151 S. Williams St., Nappanee, was arrested on 10 counts of possession of child pornography and transported to the Elkhart County Jail.
The nearly year-long investigation by the Indiana State Police ICACTF began when a tip was received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The tip ultimately led to a search warrant being served on a residence in the 100 block of South Williams Street in Nappanee by the Indiana State Police with assistance by the Nappanee Police Department.
Anyone having any information related to crimes against children are encouraged to contact their local law enforcement agency or visit the NCMEC website and find the link to make a CYBERTIPLINE report.
The Indiana ICACTF was assisted by the Nappanee Police Department, State Trooper William Ennis and Trooper Aaron Price.
