A strange turn of events in Montgomery County, Ohio resulted in the eventual arrest of a disturbing pedophile after a passenger left his mobile device inside of a Lyft taxi driver's vehicle.
When the Lyft driver found one of his passenger's phones in his backseat, he then attempted to locate the customer's identity inside of the device.
However, he would instead accidentally stumble-upon perverse and sickening images of prepubescent young children being sexually assaulted.
The disturbing videos and images found on the former passenger's lost phone would shock the Lyft driver, who would then contact law enforcement and report what he'd found.
The Miami Township Police Department would then immediately obtain a search warrant for the hotel in which the Lyft driver dropped off 27-year-old Marvin D. Hemphill, of Georgia, and placed him under arrest.
A Montgomery County Grand Jury announced on Wednesday that they'd indicted Hemphill on 24 counts of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor child.
Hemphill has been transferred to the Montgomery County Jail where he's being held on a $100,000.00 cash bond until arraignment on January 23rd, according to<a href="http://abc22now.com/news/local/man-charged-after-lyft-driver-discovered-child-porn-on-his-phone"> ABC 22 Now</a>.
It further underscores that you simply never know who you're allowing into your vehicle, or if the person standing beside you could secretly be a brutal pedophile.
The unintentional efforts of this Lyft driver makes him a hero, whether he realizes it or not, and he may have saved a child in the future from becoming victim to this child sexual predator.
