A Warsaw man is facing numerous charges related to possession of child pornography, drugs and weapons after a tip was received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).
According to an Indiana State Police news release, on Thursday detectives with the ISP Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) arrested Aaron Burchett, 35, on alleged charges of possession of child pornography.
This investigation by the ISP ICAC Task Force began when a tip was received from the NCMEC. The tip led to a search warrant being served on a residence located at 3762 W. Old 30, lot 702, Warsaw, by the ISP.
While serving this search warrant, troopers also found suspected methamphetamine, THC oil, synthetic marijuana, syringes, numerous pills, a shotgun, a handgun, drug paraphernalia and suspected drug packaging materials.
As a result of the investigation, Burchett was arrested for one count of possession of child pornography, a level 5 felony; one count of possession of child pornography, a level 6 felony; dealing in a controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a legend drug, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, possession of marijuana, possession of a hypodermic syringe, possession of paraphernalia, and maintaining a common nuisance.
Burchett was taken to and booked into the Kosciusko County Jail at 12:41 a.m. Thursday. His preliminary bond was set at $15,250.
The ISP oversees the ICAC Task Force, a multiagency task force that investigates allegations of using the internet to sexually exploit or entice children.
The ICAC Task Force encourages Hoosiers to report online exploitation, solicitation and enticement-type crimes against children to the NCMEC. The NCMEC website can be accessed through the ICAC Task Force website at https://www.in.gov/isp/icactf/.
The Indiana State Police was assisted by the Kosciusko County Prosecutor’s Office, Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office, Lagrange County Sheriff’s Office, Warsaw Police Department, United States Department of Homeland Security Investigations and the United States Customs and Border Patrol.
