PIQUA — An investigation into a report of child pornography has resulted in an multiple indictments for a local man.

Joshua L. Schwarz, 29, of Piqua, has been charged with 10 counts of fourth-degree felony pandering sexually oriented material, 10 counts of fifth-degree felony illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material, and one count of third-degree felony tampering with evidence.

The Piqua Police Department began their investigation on Aug. 29. According to a press release from the Piqua Police Department, evidence gathered during the investigation was presented to a grand jury in late January. Indictments and a warrant were issued.

The Miami County Prosecutor’s Office could not release the number of victims involved in the case, but all of the reported victims were prepubescent from infants to children aged 6 years old. According to the prosecutor’s office, all of the charges are for photographs Schwarz reportedly had on his computer.

On Sunday, patrol division officers observed Schwarz driving near his residence, stopped the vehicle, and took him into custody.

Schwarz spent one day in jail at the Miami County Jail before being released on bond on Monday.
