The investigation began in February of this year

On Thursday, April 4, 2019 an ongoing investigation led by the Indiana State Police Internet Crimes Against Children task force (ICAC), led to the arrest of a Madison, Indiana man for possession of child pornography. 

The investigation began in February of this year when the Indiana State Police received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. That investigation led Detective Tom Basham from the Indiana State Police ICAC Task Force, to meet Lantz Edward Alexander Helms, 21, Madison, Indiana at the Charlestown Police Department for questioning. 

As a result of the interview and investigation, Helms was arrested and charged with 107 counts of Possession of Child Pornography, a level 6 felony.  Lantz Helms was then remanded into the custody of the Clark County Jail. 

Officers from the Indiana State Police were assisted by the Charlestown Police Department. 

This investigation is ongoing.
