Search warrant served in sexual exploitation case
06/08/2021

(KNZA)--The Hiawatha Police Department served a search warrant over the weekend in connection with an investigation into the alleged sexual exploitation of a child.

Police Chief John Defore, in a news release, said the Department served the search warrant on Saturday in the 500 block of Iowa Street.

Defore said the warrant was obtained following an investigation triggered by a suspicious activity report made by the Kansas Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

During execution of the warrant, officers seized electronics, hard drives, computers and other data storage devices, which were believed to have been used for the sexual exploitation of a child under the age of 14.

The case remains under investigation. Once the investigation is complete, Defore said reports will be submitted to the Brown County Attorney's Office for review of potential charges.
