In January 2020, an investigation by the Warrick County Sheriff’s Office began after WCSO received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The investigation led to probable cause for a search warrant, which was obtained and executed by WCSO Detectives on July 28 at a residence in the 8900 block of Camelot Drive in Newburgh, Indiana.

WCSO says during the search of the residence child sexual abuse material was located, and 27-year-old Anthony Jordan Richardson of Newburgh was taken into custody.

Richardson was charged with the following:

  • Child Exploitation, a Level 4 felony (3 Counts)
  • Child Exploitation, a Level 5 felony
  • Possession of Child Pornography, a Level 5 felony (3 Counts)
  • Possession of Child Pornography, a Level 6 Felony

Richardson was lodged in the Warrick County Jail on a $10,000 cash bond.

All suspects are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
