Cyber Tips Lead to Arrest of Bristol Man for Child Pornography Charges

Published

By

A Bristol man has been charged with felony related child pornography offenses after tips come in exposing his criminal lust and pornographic need for children as sex objects.

The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office initiated the investigation, in early April, of two CyberTips that were submitted to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).  MediaLab/Kik submitted both reports from a person with the screen/user name “cptsnacks” to NCMEC, said police.

The first CyberTip report included six different online incidences, four seeking child sexual abuse material (CSAM) and two separate chats, one with a purported 13-year-old and the other with a purported 15-year-old. The six incidences in this report happened in February of this year, ending with four incidences on February 14, authorities said.

The chats seeking CSAM ranged from questions on type of material to payment methods. Chats with the purported minors ranged from location and  preferences to their comfortability of certain acts. In conversation with purported 15-year-old, he questioned her comfort level with his age and marital status, according to the affidavit.

The second CyberTip reported that a Kik Messenger user saved, shared and/or uploaded apparent CSAM, said in the probable cause, on or about February 14 at approximately 2 a.m. The material consisted of two videos and two image files.

The device allegedly used by “cptsnacks” utilized the Android operating system.  Verizon was identified as the internet provider and their records showed the IP address as a Bristol Borough location. PennDOT records identified Joshua Lee Hill, 37. At the time of the alleged incidences, he was 36, married and resides near Philadelphia was consistent with the chat information given by “cptsnacks”, police said.

During a June search of his residence, multiple electronics were seized and an interview with Hill was conducted. In the interview, Hill stated that “cptsnacks” and the email address associated with it were used in the past. He did not acknowledge any activity alleged in the CyberTips prior to his invocation of counsel, said police.

Analysis of the electronics was not available at time of criminal filing. One electronic device held in excess of 50 CSAM images and also included a chat thread in which he allegedly provided the email address, he stated he no longer used,  to another party.

Hill  was arraigned by District Judge Terrence Hughes who set bail as unsecured. His next court date is scheduled for July 17 and will be represented by  Ethan William Paraboschi, Esq. of Philadelphia .
