Little Egg Harbor Man Arrested for Computer Child Porn

Feb 28, 2018

Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato and Little Egg Harbor Township Police Chief Richard Buzby announced the arrest of Peter S. Yeager, 59, of Little Egg Harbor. Yeager is charged with one count of possession of child pornography. The Ocean County Prosecutor’s High Tech Crime Unit, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and Little Egg Harbor Township Police Department teamed up in this latest proactive operation to stop child exploitation.

The arrest is the result of proactive cyber monitoring by the High Tech Crime Unit and several referrals from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children into people sharing or downloading images of prepubescent children engaged in sexual acts.

On Wednesday, Feb. 21, the county and township executed a search warrant by the above partnering agencies. Senior Assistant Prosecutor Kristin Pressman reviewed the investigative evidence alleging Yeager possessed images of children engaged in sexual acts and approved the above charge. Yeager is being held in the Ocean County Jail pending his first appearance. —P.J.
