Man arrested after multiple child porn images found in Paulding home

A man was arrested Tuesday after Homeland Security officials discovered original pornographic videos of children in his home, according to the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office. 

Thomas Joseph Cwik, 32, is accused of molesting and making pornographic videos with at least two minors in Paulding, Cobb and Douglas counties, sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ashley Henson said. 

Paulding sheriff’s and Homeland Security investigators executed a federal search warrant at a home on Primrose Lane in Powder Springs, he said. The home is located where Paulding, Cobb and Douglas counties meet, he said. 

During the search, authorities found multiple images of child pornography, along with some original child pornography videos on computers and other devices. Cwik was taken into custody shortly after, according to Henson. 

Cwik is being held in the Paulding jail on a charge of sexual exploitation of children in lieu of $33,200 bond. Anyone with information on Cwik is urged to contact the Paulding sheriff’s office at 770-445-6105 or Homeland Security at 404-346-2831.
