LH man accused of sexual abuse of children

LOCK HAVEN – Michael S. Grenninger, 35, of 502 W. Grape St., Castanea Township, is in the Clinton County Correctional Facility on $250,000 bail, accused of sexually abusing children.

Grenninger was arrested Tuesday by the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation Northeast Computer Crime Unit, with assistance by state police at Lamar.

He is charged with numerous counts of sexual abuse of children in relation to manufacturing, disseminating and possessing child pornography.

The arrest follows the execution of a search warrant at the Grape Street address Tuesday in reference to a child pornography investigation.

The search warrant stemmed from an Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) investigation in which a task force member with the identity of an 11-year-old girl was contacted by Grenninger over online chat and offered money in return for sexual acts, according to a press release from the Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
