Camden, N.J. – A Somerdale man has been charged after detectives executed a search warrant at his home and located images of child sexual exploitation, according to Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer and Somerdale Police Chief James Walsh.
Maxwell Sanchez, 25, of Somerdale, has been charged with one count of third-degree Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
