Former Elysburg Man Charged With Possessing Child Porn

A former Elysburg man is in the Northumberland County lock-up charged with sharing child pornograph on social media back in 2017. 22-year-old Royce Yeager currently of Watsontown and formerly of Elysburg was charged by the state Attorney General’s Child Predator Unit with 3 felonies and is in the Northumberland County Prison in lieu of $20,000 bail. Investigators say Yeager admitted to first viewing child porn while “probably” in High School. Investigators say they began their investigation after the social networking website, Tumblr, notified the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that pornographic photos of children were uploaded to a Tumblr page traced to Yeager.
