|Baltimore County Police have arrested 56 year old Tony Chestnut of the 1200-block of Halstead Road in Parkville and charged him with Possession and Distribution of Child Pornography and other related offenses.
Police served a search and seizure warrant on his home after detectives received information that Chestnut was in possession of child pornography. Detectives were able to recover movies that were found to contain child pornography.
Police say another video recovered showed Chestnut sexually abusing a developmentally disabled adult male.
At the time of the investigation, Chestnut was employed as a group home caregiver for developmentally disabled adults with Associated Catholic Charities.
The victim was later identified as someone that Mr. Chestnut had contact with during his course of employment.
