The criminal complaint filed Thursday against 18-year-old Chakong Yathortou indicates officers found 27 items of child pornography on a seized cell phone, 10 of which depicted sexual acts involving children as young as three years old as well as an infant. The case started as a cyber tip received by police in February detailing child phonography being uploaded to Facebook in October 2021.
