LISBON, OH (WKBN) – Police have been getting dozens of calls from parents about a Lisbon photographer facing federal child pornography charges.

Law enforcement raided David Grunden’s photography business, DCG Productions, on Tuesday.

Agents said they seized almost 180 images of child porn from Grunden’s computer.

He took legitimate photos and videos of children for his business.

Investigators said Grunden would then edit their faces onto other images and videos to make it look like they were in inappropriate situations.

They said he sold these edited images and videos of children being raped, beaten and killed.

Investigators said Grunden also put out online advertisements, looking for grown men who would be willing to have sex with and beat children.

Lisbon police said they’re getting calls from parents of kids whose photos may have been taken by Grunden. These parents should call the FBI office in Boardman at 330-965-2940.
