Douglas Maddox, 57, of Perkasie, turned himself in at the New Britain Township Police Department on 5/19/17. An arrest warrant was issued after he was charged with possession of child pornography and related offenses.
The investigation began in October 2016 when an undercover investigation located a computer on the internet that was sharing files of child pornography. Police, who were working as part of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, determined the location of this computer.
Law enforcement personnel from New Britain Township, Perkasie Borough, Penndel Borough, Upper Merion Township, and the FBI executed a search warrant at Maddox’s home on 5/17/17. Files of child pornography were being downloaded when police arrived at the house and a preliminary examination located several hundred files of additional child pornography on this computer.
Maddox was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Regina Armitage and released on $75,000.00 unsecured bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 6/21/17 at 1:45 p.m.
