Greencastle man allegedly uploaded child porn to same cloud storage containing his driver’s license, more

08 February 2024- Over two dozen child pornography charges are being levied against a Greencastle man following a series of uploads to cloud storage systems. Cortland Douglas Cramer is charged with 25 counts of felony child pornography possession and felony criminal use of a communications facility. Cramer is in custody of Franklin County Jail on $100,000 bail.

Investigators with the Office of the Attorney General’s Child Predator Section received multiple cybertips from Synchronoss Technologies, a cloud storage company that operates multiple branded cloud data reserves including Verizon, of potential child pornography being uploaded to their servers. Special Agents received a tip on June 7th, 2023, as well as five previous cybertips regarding the same account prior to this instance. According to those tips, at least 168 total files of child pornography had been uploaded to the same account.

According to the latest tip, one file had been uploaded to Synchronoss’ servers, which was confirmed to be child porn.

A subpoena was then served on that account holder, a Verizon customer by the name of Cortland Cramer. Cramer’s home address in Greencastle was also confirmed. Because of this, a full search warrant was applied for and granted for Cramer’s account.

According to police, dozens of files of child porn were found on the account, with at least 25 depicting indecent contact and/or a child under the age of 10. Also located in that same folder were some selfie-style images where a man can be seen holding up his driver’s license. That license, it should be noted is Cortland Douglas Cramer’s with an accurate DOB and address.

Additionally, the folder yielded multiple other self-style images of Cramer both clothed and nude as well as images of Cramer wearing a uniform shirt for the company he worked for. Police say more images were found, as well, of that company’s work trucks and job number/shipping numbers for that same company.

Cortland Cramer is behind bars on $100,000 bail.
