On December 8, 2022, detectives with the Indiana State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) arrested a St. Joseph County man on alleged charges of possession of child pornography.

This investigation by the Indiana State Police ICAC Task Force began when a tip was received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). The tip ultimately led to a search warrant being served on a residence in the 300 block of North Jefferson Street in North Liberty, IN by the Indiana State Police.

As a result of the investigation, Christopher Nicolini, 48, was arrested and transported to the St. Joseph County Jail for seven counts of Possession of Child Pornography, Level 5 Felony, and one count of Child Exploitation, Level 5 Felony.

Anyone having any information related to internet crimes against children are encouraged to contact their local law enforcement agency or make a report to NCMEC at https://report.cybertip.org/.
