Two men arrested for child porn in Brown County

Brown-County-Sheriff-2_jpg_475x310_q85Two Brown County men have been arrested following an undercover investigation into the alleged possession and distribution of child pornography. Sheriff’s officials say 42-year-old Jon M. Vangheem of De Pere and 28-year-old Darryl Ripkoski of Bellevue were picked up Tuesday after separate, two-month-long investigations.

Both were due to appear in Brown County court Wednesday afternoon on multiple referred charges of possession of child pornography. Authorities say the investigations are part of their increased effort to combat the exploitation of children over the Internet.

De Pere Police, the Brown County Drug Task Force and agents from the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation also worked on the case.
