Hanover County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) Investigators arrested James Linwood Crump, Sr., of the 7100 block of Garden Park Lane Tuesday, Jan. 3. Investigators executed a search warrant, and the 46-year-old was ultimately charged with five counts of Possession of Child Pornography.

HCSO released Jan. 5 that Crump is being held without bond at the Pamunkey Regional Jail. His preliminary hearing will be Feb. 4

Child pornography is defined as images or videos of minors in engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

Some HCSO officers are members of a task force organized through the FBI.

“We receive these tips through the FBI and have a program that monitors those types of things,” Sergeant James Cooper, HCSO  Public Information Officer said.

“Whenever they get a hit for something that has occurred in our area, or downloads in our area, we take that information and start our investigative process,” Cooper said.
