A Claremore man is accused of making child pornography and molesting young girls. Claremore Police arrested 26-year-old William Humphrey Tuesday.

He was booked into the Rogers County jail on two counts of lewd molestation and one count of manufacturing child pornography.

News on 6 reporter Ashli Sims says even the Claremore Police says this case is a little unusual. Not only is William Humphrey accused of molesting two little girls, one 10, the other 12, he's also suspected of using their pictures to make child pornography.

26-year-old William Humphrey's bond is $150,000. He's a stock worker at the Claremore Wal-Mart and he lives right around the corner from the store.

Police believe the molestations took place inside his mobile home. They searched his home and say they found several items of child pornography.

Police say he admitted taping pictures of his victims' faces onto other pictures of nude bodies.

Humphrey's next door neighbor says he never would have suspected anything like this. Ben Shaffer: "It was a shock to me. You don't expect anyone to be that way but every now and then there are those people. Until you hear about it or find out about it you don't expect it."

Right now, Humphrey is suspected of molesting two young girls, but this investigation isn't over.
