Winchester KY Man Accused Of Child Porn Via Social Media

WINCHESTER, Ky. (LEX 18) — Police arrested a Winchester man after allegedly finding child pornography in his possession.

Ryan W. Mayer, 31, is charged with several offenses related to child pornography and tampering with evidence.

Police say they executed a search warrant at Mayer’s residence in the 700 block of Estes Drive on Jan. 11 after the parent of a girl younger than 16 reported Mayer had “induced” the girl to send him nude photos over the social media app Instagram.

Police said a search of his account turned up more photos of apparent child pornography.

Police said photos of male genitalia were sent from the same account to juvenile females. A subsequent search warrant was secured and police say they matched details of those photos to Mayer’s bedroom.

Mayer is also accused of trying to destroy a smartphone before the initial search, leading to the evidence tampering charge.

Mayer was being held in the Clark County Detention Center
