Heberling was charged after police found several images of child pornography on his Samsung Galaxy 8 Note cell phone and two other hard drives, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

A detective with the Lancaster County Computer Crimes Unit obtained a court order to get Heberling’s information from Comcast after the detective found a video on a file-sharing site that was being investigated in February, the affidavit says.  

After getting a warrant for Heberling’s two computer towers, phone and laptop, police said they recovered at least 20 files of child pornography, police said.

Heberling “acknowledged using his computer as well as his cellular phone to seek and download child pornography” after initially denying it, police said in the affidavit.
