      Second arrest made in Chippewa County child porn case

      Eric Lloyd Baldwin, 29, was arrested on 15 felony counts of using a computer to commit a crime and possession of child sexually abusive material.

      A second man has been arrested in a child pornography case in Chippewa County.

      Eric Lloyd Baldwin, 29, was arrested on 15 felony counts of using a computer to commit a crime and possession of child sexually abusive material.

      The investigation started several months ago when Charlevoix County deputies found some possible illegal activity in Sault Ste. Marie and alerted local authorities.

      Deputies searched a home on Carrie St. and seized several computers and electronic devices. At the time, deputies reported more than 400 images of child pornography were found.

      In March, Wayne Jacob Baldwin, 37, was arrested on 10 felony counts of using a computer for immoral purposes and five counts of possessing child abusive material.

      Eric Baldwin's bond was set at $75,000. He remains in custody. Deputies say that because of the nature of the material, they believe he is a danger to the community.

      Anyone with information that would help this case is asked to contact your local law enforcement.
