MICHIGAN CITY – Explicit child pornography images and videos were discovered in the possession of a Michigan City man, who was arrested

Scott A. Dailey, 50, faces a felony level 5 charge for possession of child pornography, according to LaPorte Superior Court.

The Indiana State Police’s Cybercrimes Unit issued a search warrant Wednesday in the 2700 block of Wozniak Road in Michigan City, ISP said.

Authorities said a thorough investigation by the Indiana State Police’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force found Dailey had explicit videos and images of children.

Investigators found Dailey uploaded 16 files of child pornography, including an explicit video of a man sexually assaulting a girl aged around 7 or 8, according to court records. Other media files saved on his phone included children between the ages of 5 and 13.
