Steuben County man arrested for child pornography

STEUBEN CO., Ind. (ADAMS) – Indiana State Police say that a man from Steuben County is facing charges after an investigation revealed that he was in possession of child pornography.

Detectives with the Indiana State Police, Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) arrested Corey Spangler on Friday of last week.

ISP officials say that an investigation by the Indiana State Police ICAC began after a tip was received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). The tip and subsequent investigation ultimately led to a search warrant being issued for a residence in the 600 block of South CR600 West, Angola. That search was executed by the Indiana State Police with assistance from Department of Homeland Security (HSI), and the Angola Police Department ICAC.

Indiana State Police released the following:

As a result of the investigation, the Steuben County Prosecutor requested and was granted an arrest warrant for Corey Spangler, 33, of Angola. Spangler was arrested earlier today at his place of employment without incident, and then transported to the Steuben County Jail on the following eight preliminary charges:

Count 1: Possession of Child Pornography depicting bestiality, Level 5 Felony

Counts 2-8: Possession of Child Pornography of a person under 18, Level 5 Felony

Spangler will be incarcerated pending his initial appearance in the Steuben County Courts.
