Redkey man arrested on child pornography charges


Police arrested a Jay County man on child pornography charges after an Internet investigation.

Ronald K. Landess, 62, of Redkey, was arrested Monday after a nearly year-long investigation found him in possession of numerous items containing child pornography. Investigators were alerted to Landess after receiving an allegation that he had showed the pornography to an individual he met on Craigslist.

Landess is facing five counts of possession of child pornography. He was held at the Jay County Jail until posting bond.
