Ocean County law enforcement continues cracking down on child porn dealers and those possessing the lewd images.

59-year old Peter S. Yeager of Little Egg Harbor is charged with one count of possession of child porn following his arrest Wednesday at his home on Pine Valley Court following an executed search warrant by Ocean County Prosecutors and township police.

Yeager is being held in the Ocean County Jail pending his first appearance.

His arrest stems from cyber monitoring by the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office High Tech Crime Unit along with several referrals from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) into people sharing or downloading images of prepubescent children engaged in sexual acts.

Senior Assistant Ocean County Prosecutor Kristin Pressman reviewed the investigative evidence alleging Yeager possessed images of children engaged in sexual acts and approved the charge he is facing.

The Ocean County Prosecutor's High Tech Crime Unit (HTCU), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Little Egg Harbor Township Police Department teamed up in this latest proactive operation to stop child exploitation.

The public is reminded that criminal charges are merely accusations and that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
