Portage man accused of child pornography possession

PORTAGE, Ind. – A Portage man was arrested on Tuesday for alleged child pornography possession, Indiana State Police announced.

On Tuesday, law enforcement executed a search warrant in the 2400 block of Monnier Street in Portage.

The search warrant and subsequent arrest of 24-year-old Patrick J.O. Alaniz was the result of an investigation by detectives from the Indiana State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

The investigation began after law enforcement got a cyber tip in September 2021 about activities on a cloud-based digital storage account link to Alaniz.

Alaniz was taken to the Porter County Jail on three level 5 felonies and three level 6 felonies related to possession of child pornography.
