JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. — The owner of a popular ice cream shop in Greenwood is behind bars. 

75-year-old John Cassin, the owner of Mrs. Curl Ice Cream, has been arrested for possession of child pornography.

The Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office says investigators found photos of naked children on Cassin’s computer, and history of websites that contained sexually explicit material of children under the age of 12. The ice cream shop owner said sometimes the age of the children “went all the way down to babies.”

Cassin told investigators that this was a second computer he used to look at pornographic photos. He stated his last computer likely contained three to four years of child pornography activity, but became slow, so he threw it away. 

He also told police he had never engaged in sexual activity with a juvenile. 

Cassin has been the owner of Mrs. Curl Ice Cream since 1997.
