Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina and Lumberton Township Police Chief Nicholas Peditto announced that a Lumberton Township man was arrested today and charged with possession of child pornography.
Dino Fiabane, 73, of the 200 block of Woodside Drive, was charged with one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Child (Third Degree). The case will now be prepared for presentation to a Grand Jury for possible indictment.
The investigation began late last year after the Prosecutor’s Office High-Tech Crimes Unit was notified of Fiabane’s online search activities by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
He was taken into custody at his home this morning following the execution of a search warrant, during which multiple computers, cell phones, external hard drives and other digital storage devices were seized. A preliminary review of the devices by the High-Tech Crimes Unit detectives revealed child pornography images.
The investigation was conducted by the BCPO High-Tech Crimes Unit, with assistance from the New Jersey State Police Digital Technology Investigations Unit, the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, and the Lumberton Township Police Department.
The lead investigator is BCPO Detective Kevin Sobotka. The Prosecutor’s Office High-Tech Crimes Unit is a member of the New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force and the New Jersey State Police Cyber Terrorism Task Force.
All persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
