DELAWARE COUNTY, Okla. – Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit agents arrested a 38-year-old Afton man on charges related to child sex abuse. Glenn David Nickols was arrested on May 4, 2021 in Ottawa County for one count of Aggravated Possession of Child Pornography and one count of Distribution of Child Pornography; both are felony charges.

The investigation originated on March 24, 2021 when an internet service provider flagged an account that was disseminating images consistent with child sexual exploitation. The internet service provider reported the account to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) cybertip line. Based on the IP address being located in Oklahoma, NCMEC then forwarded the investigation to the OSBI.

A search warrant for the email account used by Nickols revealed more than 100 images and two videos containing child pornography. ICAC agents observed the images of a pre-pubescent female child in a series of sexually explicit photos and found them to be consistent with child exploitation material. Based on the evidence collected, an arrest warrant was issued on for Nickols. Nickols was arrested without incident and transported to the Delaware County jail for arraignment.

As the investigation continued, agents located and identified the pre-pubescent female child that was seen in the images. With the identification of the child, Nickols faces additional charges of Sesxual Abuse of a Child Under the Age of 12 and Production of Child Pornography. He is being held without bond on the new charges until a court appearance is held.

The OSBI ICAC Unit would like to thank the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Tulsa for their assistance with this investigation.
