Brunswick man Brandon Price faces charge after child pornography found in home with day care

Suspect, 26, appears in court

BRUNSWICK, Ohio - A Brunswick man is facing a felony charge after child pornography was discovered inside of a home where a day care was also operating, according to Brunswick police.

Brandon Price, 26, was charged with one count of illegal use of minor in nudity-oriented materials or performance. He appeared in Medina Municipal Court on Thursday where his bond was set at $100,000.

Brunswick detectives received a tip from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force about possible activity involving child pornography at a home on George Drive.

On Wednesday morning, officers executed a search warrant and seized computers and electronic storage devices. Images of child porn were found, but police are not revealing how many. The evidence is still being analyzed.

Brunswick police spokesman Nick Solar said Price's parents were operating an in-home day care in the basement. Solar said the parents are not suspects in the case and doesn't believe the day care children were photographed or exposed to the pornography.

"There's no indication at this point that any of their children were involved in this in any way," Solar said.

Investigators believe Price was downloading the images, not producing them.

During the search warrant, police discovered eight children were being watched at the day care. Their parents were called and told to pick up the kids.

Solar said the day care was not licensed with the county or the state.

The city's building department issued a notice of violation and correction order for "operating an unlicensed child care establishment in which child care is provided for more than seven children at one time."

Brunswick Chief Building Official Dan Gladish said the owners were told to cease and desist operating a day care at this time.
