Two Men Accused Of Having Child Pornography In GT Co.

After months of investigations, Grand Traverse Sheriff's Department Deputies say two men accused of having child pornography have been arrested.

Charles Martin Jr. and Dakota Salmons were arrested this week in Grawn in Blair Township.
Police say a tip they received back in December led them to uncover thousands of images of pornographic material involving children on laptops and thumb drives belonging to Martin Jr. and Salmons.
Martin Jr. is charged with five counts of possession, Salmons is charged with four.
Both are in jail on $250,000 and will appear in court later this month.
 
Detectives do say that after analyzing the material found, it doesn't appear any of the images involve local children, and neither Martin Jr. nor Salmons is accused of distributing or manufacturing child pornography.
 
9&10's Marisa McKay and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson spoke to the lead detective in the case and have more details on what happens next.
