Local News

City of Cortland Police arrested an 18-year-old man listed as homeless on Wednesday (February 12), after a brief investigation led to the discovery of child pornography on his cell phone.

Detective Lt. Michael Strangeway says the case was officially opened just before 3 am, leading to the arrest of Noah B. Thompson less than 12 hours later.

Investigators say they found more than 100 photos and videos of “prepubescent boys engaged in obscene sexual conduct with adult men” on Thompson’s cell phone.

None of the children or adults in the photographs or videos are known, according to Lt. Strangeway.

Thompson was charged with two felonies for Possession of a Sexual Performance by a Child and Possession of an Obscene Sexual Performance by a Child, later released to appear in city court on March 11.
