In January 2020, an investigation by the Warrick County Sheriff’s Office began after WCSO received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

The investigation led to probable cause for a search warrant, which was obtained and executed by WCSO Detectives on July 28 at a residence in the 8900 block of Camelot Drive in Newburgh, Indiana.

WCSO says during the search of the residence child sexual abuse material was located, and 27-year-old Anthony Jordan Richardson of Newburgh was taken into custody.

Richardson was charged with the following:

  • Child Exploitation, a Level 4 felony (3 Counts)
  • Child Exploitation, a Level 5 felony
  • Possession of Child Pornography, a Level 5 felony (3 Counts)
  • Possession of Child Pornography, a Level 6 Felony

Richardson was lodged in the Warrick County Jail on a $10,000 cash bond.

All suspects are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
