ALTOONA Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – An Altoona man is charged with 20 separate counts of possession of child pornography. According to the criminal complaint, the Altoona Police Department received a cyber tip in November 2021.

Then on March 27, the Altoona Police Department responded to Mahon’s address for a report of him attempting to destroy evidence. Officers also recovered a bag full of “green leafy buds,” which tested positive for THC. A court appearance is scheduled for June 13.
