A New Whiteland man was arrested after police said he molested a 5-year-old girl.
Timothy L. Gransbury, 54, was arrested on charges of child molesting and dissemination of harmful material to a minor.
New Whiteland police were contacted by Child Protective Services on Wednesday, who were investigating a report that the girl had been molested at Gransbury’s home, 184 Hilltop Farms Blvd. The girl’s mother reported the incident to the state, New Whiteland Town Marshal Ed Stephenson said.
Police interviewed the girl, who told officers that Gransbury showed her pornographic videos and engaged in sexual acts with her, Stephenson said.
Police got a search warrant, took two laptops from Gransbury’s house and arrested him Thursday. The laptops will be sent to the Indiana State Police crime lab and searched for evidence, Stephenson said.
Gransbury was taken to the Johnson County jail, where he was being held on $23,000 bond.
