Decatur Police Detectives arrested a 19-year-old Decatur man after they received a cyber tip that he was uploading child pornography to the internet.
19-year-old Hunter Roush was arrested on Thursday, February 9, just before 7 AM, after Decatur Police obtained a search warrant to search his home for child pornography.
According to Macon County sworn statements, Decatur authorities had received a cyber tip from the Illinois Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force. The task force reports they had gotten that tip from The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), which had received a report from the service provider Dropbox, Inc on November 2, 2016.
Macon County sworn statements report Dropbox, Inc. officials had turned over files and other information on Roush, who Decatur Police now say had been using the online storage service to upload child pornography and make it available to the public.
