YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — More than a dozen Youngstown officers, Mahoning County deputies and state agents from both Ohio and Pennsylvania converged on the house in the 1300 block of Detroit Avenue Thursday searching for evidence of child porn.

Authorities took Seth Thompson into custody and charged him with pandering obscenity involving a minor. Police say the alleged crimes occurred while Thompson, who just turned 18, was a juvenile. Investigators believe Thompson was using a tactic called “sextorting.”

“Basically, bribe the guardian of the 8-year-old to send photos and videos of the 8-year-old to him,” said Det. Sgt. Jessica Shields.

During the raid, agents also arrested another person, but those charges were later dropped. The incident remains under investigation, however.

“We seized three cellphones to my knowledge and several computers, which will be turned over to BCI,” Shields said.

Since the alleged victim is from the Pittsburgh area, police say Thompson could eventually face charges in both states.
