Month-long investigation leads to child porn arrest in Coventry

COVENTRY TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- A 67-year-old man is behind bars after authorities say he downloaded known images of child pornography.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office received an investigative lead from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force back on Aug. 17.

On Aug 20, a search warrant was executed at a home on Alma Avenue in Coventry in which investigators seized computers, CDs and other electronic storage media.

One full month later, authorities arrested Craig Provence on Wednesday. He is being held in the Summit County Jail on two counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor.

Additional charges are pending.
