On Friday, the Loogootee Police Department received a complaint of a male subject inside Wendy’s restaurant, 704 W Broadway, viewing what appeared to be child pornography.

Officers made contact with the suspect, who was identified as Timothy L. Guy, 71, of 13499 Mt. Calvary Road, Loogootee.

During the investigation, Guy gave Loogootee police consent to search the contents of his computer and external hard drive. Upon searching the computer, police allegedly found several images of nude females ranging in age from approximately five to six years old to approximately 13 to 14 years old.

Martin County Prosecutor Michael Steiner was contacted and a search warrant was applied for and granted by Martin Circuit Court Judge Lynn Ellis. During the execution of the search warrant at Guy’s residence, officers allegedly located multiple media storage devices, two cameras, two tablet computers, and an external hard drive.

Prosecutor Steiner is considering seeking cooperation from federal authorities with this case.

Guy was arrested and preliminarily charged with a Level 5 charge of possession of child pornography and lodged in the Martin County Security Center.

Assisting with the investigation and arrest were the Indiana State Police, Martin County Sheriff’s Office and the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office.

Police issued a reminder with news of the arrest that all individuals are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
