In a recent development, deputies from the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office apprehended a local man in Sykesville, Maryland on charges related to possession of child pornography. The suspect, identified as Aedon Luke Reckner, 21, was arrested after an intensive Internet Crimes Against Children Investigation yielded evidence incriminating him in the illegal activity.

Reckner faces eight counts of Possession of Child Pornography, and following his arrest, he was taken to the Carroll County Detention Center. He was later released on a $5,000 bond pending further legal proceedings.

The investigation into Reckner’s activities began in December 2023 when the Carroll County Advocacy and Investigation Unit launched a probe into online child pornography possession. The culmination of this effort led to a search warrant being executed at Reckner’s residence on Wednesday, March 27, at 5:00 a.m. During the operation, electronic devices were seized for forensic analysis to gather additional evidence.

The Carroll County Advocacy and Investigation Unit collaborates closely with the Maryland Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, operating as part of a concerted law enforcement initiative involving agencies statewide. This collective effort is made possible through grant funds from the Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth and Victim Services, as well as a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. The focus of the task force is to identify individuals engaged in child pornography and related crimes that exploit children through the use of the Internet.

It is essential to remember that all suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
