Police arrest Coventry Township man on meth charges, find child pornography on his computer

Home within 1,000 feet of Coventry High School

COVENTRY TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Summit County Sheriff's deputies have charged a 33-year-old man with drug and child porn charges.

The sheriff's department received a tip from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that indicated child pornography could have been downloaded at an address on Nola Lane.

Detectives executed a search warrant on September 13 and discovered a working meth lab in the basement.

Jesse Guyton was arrested on meth-making charges.

On Monday, September 17, investigators charged Guyton with pandering sexually-oriented matter involving a minor after finding child pornography on computer equipment.

Detectives continue to analyze several computers that were seized and are not sure if any of the victims are local children.

"A thorough investigation will be conducted to determine whether pictures were downloaded off the internet or if it had been produced, or if there are any victims that we can locate. Our first priority, obviously, is to make sure that no children have been harmed and there are no victims in the area," said Inspector Bill Holland.

Neighbors expressed shock over the charges.

One neighbor, Jack Milhoan, 73, said Guyton lives at his grandmother's home.

"I've lived here 45 years and I just can't imagine Jesse doing something like that," Milhoan said.

Investigators said more charges are pending.

Holland said the drug charges are felonies because Guyton lives within 1,000 feet of Coventry High School.

He's being held in the Summit County Jail on a $500,000 bond.
