LOCKPORT – A routine search by a state parole officer led to charges of indecency and endangering being filed against a Middleport man.

David L. Vercruysse, 38, of Main Street, was charged Wednesday with disseminating indecent material to minors and endangering the welfare of a child.

According to investigators, Vercruysse had nude photos on his cellphone of a girl under age 16.

Vercruysse had been on parole after being convicted on felony drunken driving charges in 2011.

Authorities said someone can be charged with dissemination of indecent materials to a minor when that person sends materials which depict or describe actual or simulated nudity or invite a minor to engage in various sexual conduct.
