A Lincoln County man was indicted by the grand jury last Tuesday following an investigation and subsequent discovery of child pornography images.
In December of 2019, an investigation was conducted by the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department Criminal Investigation Division into the suspect, Timothy Greenman, age 31, of Fayetteville.
During this investigation, over 500 images containing sexually exploited children (child pornography) were discovered on a phone belonging to Greenman, investigators said.
Evidence from this investigation was presented to the grand jury by Sgt./Inv. Nathan Massey on Tuesday, which resulted in an indictment charging Greenman, of 6 Windstone Drive, with four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor over 100 images.
Greenman was served the indictment and is currently being held in the Lincoln County jail.
He was arrested on Dec. 7, 2019 on unrelated charges.
