ALTOONA MAN FACING CHILD PORN CHARGES

An Altoona man is facing child pornography charges. 20 year old Jeffrey Snaman is not charged with 17 felonies and 14 misdemeanors that date back to an incident that happened in December, when police were called to a report of an attempted suicide at a home where Snaman was staying. When investigating that, police found a hypodermic needle and a burnt, metal spoon… along with narcotics, drug paraphernalia, and a bag of digital storage devices, or thumb drives, in Snaman’s bedroom that was hidden behind a radiator. When Altoona Police officers opened files on the thumb drives in search of drug trafficking evidence, they found numerous images and videos of apparent child pornography. Upon that discover, police sought a new search warrant and then returned to the house, where they seized other devices which yielded more than 1,600 images and about 125 videos of child pornography. Snaman is now in the Blair County Prison, where he is being held on $100,000 cash bail.
