ONSLOW COUNTY, NC (WITN) - Two Eastern Carolina men are accused of child porn charges after their arrests on Tuesday.

Jones / Wagner

Onslow County deputies say the arrests of Matthew Jones and Robert Wagner are not connected.

Deputies say on Tuesday they helped the FBI Sexual Exploitation Task Force with an investigation and search warrant for the home of Matthew Jones. Deputies say they seized computer equipment that had numerous porn photos and videos of children at the man's Stillwood Circle home.

The 55-year-old man is charged with four counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and four counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

In the other case, deputies were called to a domestic dispute between a woman and her boyfriend. Deputies say they learned that Rober Wagner had inappropriately touched and photographed children that were known to him.

The 33-year-old Hubert man was charged with third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and indecent liberties with a child.

In both cases, deputies say they continue to exam evidence and their investigations are ongoing.
