URBANA - A St. Joseph man with ties to Danville is facing charges of possession of child pornography in federal court.
Nathan Ingold, of the 400 block of West Grand Avenue, was arrested June 5, 2019, for "distribution, receipt and possession of child pornography."
The 13-page complaint filed against Ingold In the U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois in Urbana states that on Feb. 18 and April 14, a Galaxy S10 mobile device with an IP address belonging to him was discovered sharing child pornography using particular software during an undercover operation.
A U.S. judge authorized a search of Ingold's residence on June 3. Department of Homeland Security Agents and Task Force Officers executed the warrant June 5. Ingold was present and agreed to speak with agents.
He "admitted any child pornography material located in the residence was attributable to him," according to the complaint.
