A five month investigation results in the arrest of a Quincy man on child pornography charges Monday.

Quincy Police report its investigation into 30 year old Sidney Shackleton began in January after one of his social media accounts was flagged for possible child exploitive material. A search of his residence was conducted.

Then, due to a possible conflict of interest in Adams County, the investigation was turned over to the Appellant Prosecutor’s Office.

Shackleton was taken into custody Monday night and charged with distribution of child pornography.

Shackleton posted and was released from the Adams County Jail, pending his next court date June 16th.
