Camden, N.J. – A Somerdale man has been charged after detectives found images of child sexual exploitation on his computer, according to Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill Mayer and Somerdale Police Chief James Walsh.
Marc Heick, 50, has been charged with one count of third-degree Endangering the Welfare of Children.
On Feb. 10, detectives from the High-Tech Crimes Unit (HTCU), Somerdale Police Department, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) – Cherry Hill Office, and Camden County Sheriff’s Special Emergency Response Team executed a search warrant at Heick’s home on the unit block of Osage Ave. in Somerdale. Detectives were conducting the search based on a cyber tip that alleged someone at the home was searching for sexually explicit images containing children.
During the search, investigators located child sexual exploitation material on Heick’s computer and confiscated more digital devices for further testing.
Heick was taken to the Somerdale Police Department where he was processed and released under conditions pending further court proceedings.
All persons charged with crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
