WFFT's Charlie De Mar went back to the man's hometown of Redkey to learn more.

It took awhile for police to take down 62 year old Ronald K.  Landess, but he was finally arrested Monday after police found several items containing child porn.  Ronald Landess lives in Redkey, Indiana in Jay County.

Police arrested him at his home at 21 North Spencer.  Police say they arrested Landless without incident.  Investigators were tipped off that Landless showed child porn to someone he met on Craigslist.

That led Indiana State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Force to take action.  Neighbors we spoke with say they had no idea that their neighbor was allegedly doing the things he's accused of but if is found guilty, Don Rose says he should pay.

Landless was booked into the Jay County Jail but has since posted $10,000 dollars bond.  Landless faces 5 counts of possession of child pornography.
