Man arrested in Champion child porn case

CHAMPION, Ohio (WKBN) – A Champion man is the Trumbull County Jail on child porn charges.

Stephen Bradfield, 41, was arrested late Thursday afternoon after a house on Myrtle Avenue was raided. He is charged with four counts of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor.

Undercover agents, riding in unmarked cruisers, along with local police, were at the house for several hours Thursday afternoon. The Warren City Prosecutor’s Office Crimes Against Children unit was at the scene, as were Warren Police, Champion Police and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

“Today we are executing a search warrant for digital media, which does include computers, cellular devices and things like that and so we will take that information that is seized and then analyze it at our facility in Richfield,” BCI Special Agent Supervisor Richard Warner said.
