Man arrested for possession of child pornography in La Porte County

LA PORTE COUNTY, Ind. - A man was arrested on possession of child pornography charges on Thursday following an investigation by the La Porte County Sheriff's Office.

Victor Badillo, 45, was arrested on two counts of child pornography.

On June 9, Badillo was arrested for intimidation following an investigation surrounding an incident that happened in May.

During the intimidation investigation, detectives obtained additional information about Badillo that led them to open a second investigation into him.

A cash bond was posted for Badillo on July 19 and he was released from jail.

Probable cause was found in the second investigation and on September 26, an arrest warrant was issued for Badillo for possession of child pornography.

On Thursday, a sergeant found Badillo living in the woods in rural Coolspring Township.

Badillo was arrested and taken to the La Porte County Jail, where he is being held on a $15,000 cash-only bond.
