MONTGOMERY COUNTY - A Pennsylvania man is facing more than 250 charges of possessing child sexual abuse materials.
Edward Elvin, 65, was arrested Thursday after officials say they received a tip from Apple last month. The tech company alerted detectives that the 65-year-old may have child sexual abuse materials on his device, according to the DA's office.
After tracing the IP address, detectives seized Elvin's phone during a search of his home in Montgomery County.
Hundreds of images containing child sexual abuse were allegedly found on his phone. Officials say the images involved girls between the ages of 3 and 12.
