Vermilion man accused of raping 5-year-old

Sex toys, diapers found in car, police say

VERMILION, Ohio - A man is in custody Friday, accused of raping a 5-year-old.

Jessie Glover, 53, was arrested on five counts of rape and charges of pandering obscenity involving a minor, ONN's Cristin Severance reported .

Vermilion police Chief Chris Hartung said investigators received a tip that Glover was sexually abusing the child. Authorities said that Glover admitted to having oral sex with the boy five times.

Police said they found six photo albums with more than 1,000 pictures of suspected child pornography, including pictures of sex acts with the alleged victim.

"It was the worst thing that I've even seen in my time here," Hartung said.

Police said they also found a bag of sex toys and a half open pack of infant sized diapers in Glover's car. Authorities seized Glover's hard drive and desktop computer.

On Thursday, detectives searched an RV that Glover owned in Huron County. Details were not given about what was found inside the camper, but it's what police have already found that have them concerned.

"There are serious concerns that this individual was abusing small children, so if anyone recognizes this individual or if he had contact with their children, we encourage them to make contact with us," Hartung said.

Glover was arraigned in Vermilion Municipal Court and is being held on $1 million bond.
