Lisbon man arrested and charged for soliciting adults to have sex with children

The FBI, Cleveland Division - Youngstown Resident Agency, members of the Mahoning Valley Violent Crimes Task Force, the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation,  and the United States Attorney’s Office – Northern District of Ohio, announce the arrest of David Grunden, 34, of Lisbon.

Law enforcement executed a federal search warrant on Oct. 30 at Grunden's residence in Lisbon following a nine-month investigation.  Gruden is believed to have been engaging in the solitication and enticement of children, as well as soliciting male adults to have sex with children on film.   

Grunden was taken into custody without incident upon conclusion of the executed search warrant.  Grunden has been federally charged with solicitation and advertising for child pornography.

A complaint is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  The defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
