EXPORT, Pa. —

A 64-year-old Export man was arrested Wednesday on several charges after police said he used a school’s wifi connection, among other things, to send child pornography.

Theodore Mamel is facing two counts of unlawful contact with minors, possession and dissemination of child pornography and criminal use of communication facility charges.

Investigators said Mamel’s arrest came after a month long investigation. During that investigation, police said Mamel explicitly communicated with and sent child pornography to a person thought to be a 14-year-old girl form Belle Vernon.

The girl, however, was actually a Southwest Regional Police Department officer.

After his arrest, police said Mamel confessed to using multiple Wi-Fi connections to send the explicit content.

One of those connections came from the Lincoln Park Center for Performing Arts in Midland, where he worked as a piano repairman.

Mamel remains in the Fayette County Jail.
