Man arrested on child exploitation charge

Follow Daily Journal:

An Indianapolis man was arrested after police said he downloaded pornographic videos of children to his cellphone.

Steven Tames, 29, took his cellphone to CPR Cell Phone in Greenwood. The repair shop’s manager found 27 videos while repairing the phone and told police Dec. 9, according to a Greenwood Police Department report.

When Tames returned to CPR Cell Phone Repair with the phone for more repairs, the manager asked the police to come again. An officer took Tames’ phone, and Tames told police that he bought the phone on Craigslist in October and found videos on it, the report said. Tames told police the videos sparked his curiosity so he downloaded more of them, but he knew they were illegal, the report said.

Tames, 4302 Cat Claw Lane, was arrested on a charge of child exploitation. He was released from the Johnson County jail on $10,000 bond.
