Schwenksville Man Sought on Child Porn Charges

NORRISTOWN PA – A former Schwenksville man, wanted by Montgomery County detectives since September 2019 on an arrest warrant that charges him with multiple felony counts of possessing child pornography, on Wednesday (March 4, 2020) became the focus of a new plea issued by the county District Attorney’s office. It’s asking for public help in bringing the alleged offender to justice.

Being sought is William McGullam, age 29, who apparently abandoned his last known address, a home at 541 Krause Rd. That’s where a Detectives Bureau investigation discovered and seized electronic display and storage devices with “1,073 images … determined to be child pornography,” county DA Kevin Steele announced in a media release.

“We have tried multiple avenues to locate McGullam so he can face these charges, but we have come up empty handed,” Steele said. “We are asking if anyone knows McGullam’s whereabouts to call detectives or anonymously text in a tip.” The man has been known to also “frequent the Lower Frederick area,” the statement added.

McGullam is described as a white male, 5-feet-11-inches tall, weighing about 200 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.

Steele said the investigation began during June 2019, when the bureau received a referral from the Delaware County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Its tip originated from a cell phone application indicating one of its users had uploaded 10 child porn video files. The information traced the account to a computer generally located in the Pottstown area.

Investigators narrowed the tip down to a subscriber name on the accounts: that of McGullam, the DA claimed. Detectives executed a search warrant Aug. 8 (2019) at the Schwenksville address, and subsequently found the images. Court records show Magisterial District Justice Maurice Saylor issued the September warrant.

Anyone with information on McGullam is asked to call the bureau at 610-278-3368, or submit anonymous text tips using MontcoCrimeTips on the STOPit! app. STOPit! can be downloaded for free from the App Store for iPhones or Google Play for Android phones.
