In additioin, a resident of the address was developed as a person of interest and taken to DSP Troop #3 for further investigation.  A forensic preview of the evidence revealed multiple files of child pornography on a computer owned by the person of interest.

As a result of the investigation detectives on Thursday arrested the person of interest, 24-year-old Benjamin L. Byler, and charged him with 25 counts of dealing in child pornography.  Byler was arraigned via videophone by JP Court #2 and was taken to James T.
