GEAUGA COUNTY, Ohio — Three men wanted in connection with two separate child pornography cases have been arrested, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced.

A Geauga County grand jury indicted Matthew Logrande, Clayton McCoy and his uncle, David McKibben earlier this week.

“All three men are accused of sharing pornographic photos of children online,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.  “We cannot allow this terrible behavior to go unchecked because crimes like this can often escalate, leading to even more children being victimized.”

None of the children in the seized pictures are believed to be local children, a news release stated.

Agents with DeWine’s Crimes Against Children Unit conducted an undercover investigation and discovered child porn coming from computers in Logrande’s Hambden Township home, as well as the Chester Township home shared by McKibben and McCoy.

Acting on search warrants obtained back in April, agents removed several computers and other electronic media devices from their homes.

The devices and the properties, according to investigators, contained hundreds of child pornography images.

“We appreciate the assistance of the Attorney General and his staff for helping us protect the people of our community,” Geauga County Sheriff Daniel McClelland said.

All three men are indicted on multiple charges including pandering obscenity involving a minor, pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor, illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material or performance, and possession of criminal tools.
