DELAWARE WATER GAP, Pa. -

Officials are looking for a Monroe County man who's wanted on child pornography charges.

Detectives obtained an arrest warrant Tuesday for James Vincent Lamb, whose last known address was 36 Main St., Delaware Water Gap.

Lamb's wife discovered numerous pictures of child pornography on Lamb's laptop computer, police said.

Officers found 86 images and one video of child pornography that had been downloaded and saved by Lamb, and police found evidence that he had been actively trading images of child porn with other individuals using instant messaging software, officials said.

Further investigation revealed that Lamb, 54, was aware of the allegations against him and he may have fled the area, anticipating his arrest, police said.

Anyone who knows Lamb’s whereabouts is asked to call Det. Brian Webbe at 570-517-3114, submit a tip on the Monroe County Office of the District Attorney website, or contact police.
