Allen County, IN (Huntertown, IN)  Dillon Douglas Kingsbery, 30, of Huntertown, IN was arrested on 20 felony charges earlier today, April 14, 2015.  All of the charges were for child pornography, the result of a nearly four month long investigation into various allegations of crimes against children.

An undercover investigation into peer-to-peer file sharing conducted by the Indiana State Police uncovered a substantial cache of child pornography during the execution of today’s search warrant at Kingsbery’s Huntertown residence.   The warrant was served by member agencies of the Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, inclusive of the Indiana State Police, FBI, Fort Wayne Police Department and the United States Postal Inspection Service.

Forensic investigators were able to identify at least 6,000 files of alleged child pornography, bestiality and bondage stored on various computer devices.  Among the images recovered were a series of sexually explicit photographs and videos. Some of the recovered images allegedly involved victims previously identified by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

As a result of Kingsbery’s arrest he has been preliminarily charged by the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office with 10 counts of Child Exploitation, all level 5 felonies and 10 counts of Possession of Child Pornography, all level 6 felonies.

Investigators credit the collaborative effort of all of the agencies involved, especially that of the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office, in this complex and highly technical criminal investigation.

Kingsbery remains held in the custody of the Allen County Jail with bail set at $200,000.
