BRODHEADSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - 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 (https://bit.ly/1PgeV1i ) 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.
