SCRANTON — Authorities say a county worker in Pennsylvania used county-issued equipment to access child pornography.

The Lackawanna County district attorney’s office says Theodore Karampilas faces nearly 100 counts of possessing and disseminating child porn. It wasn’t known if the 41-year-old Scranton man has retained an attorney.

County officials say Karampilas resigned Thursday as a senior computer programmer/analyst, one day after he had been suspended. That came after authorities executed a search warrant at his home.

Authorities say officials from KIK, an instant messaging mobile app, notified federal officials that someone was downloading and disseminating child porn from Karampilas home.

Authorities found multiple external hard drives in his bedroom. They say Karampilas told them he had around 1,000 images of child porn.

Karampilas also allegedly admitted using the app on his county-issued cellphone and accessed his external hard drives using his county computer.
