Brandon Troughton of Riverside, NJ, Arrested

Burlington County Prosecutor LaChia Bradshaw's office says 30-year-old Brandon Troughton of Riverside has been charged with third-degree endangering the welfare of a child "for knowingly possessing images depicting the sexual exploitation of a child."

Authorities say an investigation began after they received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children concerning Troughton’s online activities which "revealed that Troughton had accessed CSAM [child sexual abuse material] images and saved them on a personal electronic device."

Troughton was taken into custody at his home on July 2nd and lodged in the Burlington County Jail in Mount Holly. He was released following a first appearance in superior court. His case will now be prepared for presentation to a grand jury for possible indictment.
