[ISP] Muncie Man Arrested for Child Exploitation

End Date: 4/19/2014
Entry Description

Anderson – A Muncie man was arrested yesterday around 11:30 a.m. when an alert trooper spotted the man as he and his juvenile victim were about to enter a hotel room in Anderson. John McClafferty, age 43, was detained by Pendleton Trooper David Preston and arrested by Detective Bob May, after Preston spotted McClafferty and his teenage victim in the lot of the Motel 6 in Anderson.

Pendleton District Detective Bob May, who had been investigating McClafferty for an earlier incident, was contacted at the Pendleton Post yesterday morning by the victim’s mother to report that her son had left his school and was a possible runaway. Trooper Doug Snyder was sent to the school, and from surveillance cameras, was able to see the victim leaving the school in a vehicle matching the description of McClaffertys.

Detective May had State Police Radio put out a dispatch to “be on the lookout” for McClafferty’s vehicle, and a short time later Trooper Preston spotted the vehicle at the Anderson motel. McClafferty stands charged with Child Exploitation, Class “C” Felony; Possession of Child Pornography, Class “D” Felony and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor, Class “A” Misdemeanor. The investigation is ongoing, and further charges could be filed.
