Orange County Man Arrested for Possession of Child Pornography   Orange County  A Cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) led to the arrest of an Orange County man for possession of child pornography.     Detectives with the Indiana State Police – Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force in Sellersburg began an investigation in July 2023 after receiving a cyber tip report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The cyber tip report indicated that a specific account was possibly used to transmit child pornography images or video files.     Investigators requested a search warrant based on information gathered during the investigation. As a result, on Thursday, January 4, 2024, members of the Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force executed a search warrant at an address (French Lick) in western Orange County.   As a result of the investigation and search, Orange County Deputies arrested 36-year-old Brandon Lee Alexander for five counts of Possession of Child Pornography. Each count is a level 5 Felony.    On April 1, 2024, Deputies arrested Alexander following the investigation and transported him to the Orange Couty Jail without incident.      The Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force is a multiagency task force that investigates and prosecutes persons who use the internet to sexually exploit or entice children, and the Indiana State Police oversees the task force.   The Indiana ICAC Task Force encourages Hoosiers to report online exploitation, solicitation, and enticement-type crimes against children to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). The NCMEC website can be accessed through the ICAC Task Force website. To report a crime with your child as a victim involving the Internet or other electronic means, please contact your local Indiana law enforcement agency.   ICAC Taskforce website: https://www.in.gov/isp/icactf/   “All subjects are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.”
