A cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) led Indiana State Police investigators to the address of a Clarksville man on Wednesday, February 24, 2021, in reference to possible possession of child pornography.
Trooper Tom Basham with the Indiana State Police Internet Crimes Against Children unit in Sellersburg began the investigation in December of 2020 after receiving information from NCMEC.
Based on information gathered during the investigation, officers met with and interviewed Robert E. Penrose, 38, after locating him in New Albany, Indiana.
As a result of the investigation, Penrose was arrested on two (2) counts of Possession of Child Pornography. Each charge is a Level 6 Felony.
Robert Penrose was transported and remanded into the custody of the Clark County Jail without incident.
