The Warren County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) report the conclusion of  an investigation regarding the distribution of child sexual abuse material with an arrest.

After a 7-month investigation that included the tracing of the perpetrator’s use of several different online programs and platforms the arrest was made.

The traces narrowed the source of the material and confirmed the location as in the 4000 block of Freezeland Road and a search warrant was issued.

On Friday Christopher J. Martin of Linden was arrested and transported to the Rappahannock Shenandoah Warren Regional Jail where he is being held without bond.

The 27-year-old Matin’s court date is set at April 11 at 11 a.m. in Warren County’s Juvenile and Domestic relations court.

Anyone with any information involving this case or any case involving the exploitation or solicitation of minors should contact the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.
