York Area Regional Police in April linked the images to Warren's residence during an investigation into child pornography on BitTorrent, a file-sharing protocol that lets users distribute data and electronic files over the internet, according to court records.

The department provided the information to Newberry Township Police for follow-up investigations, charging documents say.

Newberry Township Police in June served a search warrant at Warren's home and seized multiple electronic and storage devices, some found in a basement music studio, according to the criminal complaint. 

On the devices, police found 232 images and 238 videos showing sexual abuse including rape and torture of children as young as 6 months old, dating back to July 2015, according to court records.

Warren was arraigned Thursday before District Judge Laura S. Manifold and is free on  $1,500 bail, according to court records. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 9 before District Judge Scott J. Gross.
