The recent arrest of a Pittston man for a variety of sex crimes involving internet child pornography illustrates how police can use internet technology to find this type of crime.

The internet is familiar to most people in Lackawanna County. Many use it to make purchases and to sell things. Some even use it for criminal purposes.
