Police Charge Man with Child Porn

Andrew Jacob GreeneGaston County Police have charged Andrew Jacob Greene, age 31, of 1020 S. Marietta St. Gastonia, NC with six (6) felony counts of 2nd degree sexual exploitation of a minor and six (6) felony counts of 3rd degree sexual exploitation of a minor. The charges stem from a search warrant executed by Gaston County Police, with the assistance of Homeland Security Investigations, in March of this year.

The search came as a result of a cybercrime tip received from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC). During the search, County Police detectives seized electronic storage devices belonging to Greene.  Forensic examinations were performed on the devices, which led to the discovery of numerous images and videos containing child pornography. 

Greene is currently incarcerated in the Gaston County Jail, being held on a $250,000 secured bond.

The investigation continues and anyone with information is asked to contact Det. R.L. Smith at 704-866-3320 or Crimestoppers at 704-861-8000.  There is no further information available at this time.
