VALPARAISO | A Valparaiso-area man is accused of downloading child pornography created by a Ukrainian company.

Alan Cox, 60, was arrested Friday on multiple counts of possession of child pornography and child exploitation.

Porter County authorities were notified in Sept. 20 by a Department of Homeland Security agent that child pornography had been downloaded to a computer in a home in Washington Township.

The files were downloaded between Aug. 18 and Sept. 2, according to police.

The files included videos of underage nude girls dancing on tables and of young girls drawing on themselves. Police noted the identity of the girls could not be obtained, but the girls seemed to speak in a foreign accent.

Police said the videos were produced by "Is Magazine," which was associated with LS Studios, an online subscription service that operated from 2001 to 2004 in the Ukraine, which specialized in photos and video of teen and prepubescent girls.

An arrest warrant was issued and Cox was arrested by the U.S. Marshal's Service.
