Knox Man Arrested on Child Porn, Meth Charges

knox-policeKNOX, Pa. (EYT) – A Knox man is behind bars today after being arrested on child pornography and drug charges.

According to court documents, 28-year-old Blake Irvin Hinderliter IV, of Knox, was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Amy Long Turk on Friday, May 24, at 1:45 p.m. on the following charges:

– Child Pornography, Felony 3
– Intentional Possession of Controlled Substance, Misdemeanor
– Use/Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor

The charges are the result of an investigation conducted by the Knox Police Department stemming from an incident that occurred on March 13, 2019, at an apartment located on Main Street in Knox.

According to a criminal complaint, on March 13, Blake Hinderliter IV arrived at the Knox Borough Police Station to report that probation was trying to get inside of his residence to find someone. However, after contacting probation, it was found that no agent was at Hinderliter’s residence that day.

The complaint states that Hinderliter then admitted to Chief Joab Orr, of the Knox Borough Police Department, that he had snorted methamphetamine earlier in the day and still had methamphetamine on the kitchen table in his residence. Hinderliter also admitted to using his phone to set up the purchase of the methamphetamine.

A search warrant was then applied for and granted for Hinderliter’s apartment and phone.

The complaint notes a search of the residence turned up a small amount of methamphetamine along with numerous plastic straws that were cut for snorting, as well as a crack pipe and a brown pipe with marijuana residue.

According to the complaint, during the search of the phone for drug information, photos were found of suspected child pornography. At that time, another search warrant was issued on Hinderliter’s cell phone, and a further review of the phone led to the discovery of a video of a 10- to 12-year-old male engaging in oral sex, as well as an image of a 5- to 7-year-old female engaged in oral sex with a 5- to 7-year-old male.

Based on the investigation, the Knox Borough Police Department filed charges against Hinderliter on Friday, May 24.

He was lodged in the Clarion County Jail and released after posting $5,000.00 cash bail.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, with Judge Turk presiding.
