Police: Pa. man stole neighbor's Wi-Fi, downloaded child porn
BRODHEADSVILLE, Pa. — Officials say an eastern Pennsylvania man was arrested after using his neighbor's unsecured wireless Internet to download child pornography.
The Morning Call of Allentown reports 33-year-old Chad Wieder was charged with multiple counts of possessing child pornography and criminal use of a communication facility.
The Monroe County District Attorney's Office says an investigation began last month when detectives discovered a computer on a file-sharing network downloading and offering to share child pornography.
Detectives traced the activity back to a home in Chestnuthill Township but found none of the computers at the residence had the pornography.
The investigation eventually led police to Wieder, who they say had a tablet computer with several hundred photographs and videos.
Police are conducting a forensic examination of Wieder's computer.
