PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A former Kennywood employee accused of possessing child pornography will stand trial.

Nicolas Lancos, 32, was held for trial at a preliminary hearing Tuesday morning.

Authorities say Lancos, who worked at the local amusement park, knowingly sold, distributed and displayed child pornography on the Internet.

Earlier this month, Lancos was arrested after a two-month investigation in which authorities say agents downloaded pornography from his computer.

Agents working in the state Attorney General’s Child Predator Unit linked up with Lancos’ address through the computer and obtained a search warrant for his home in the city’s Greenfield section.

They seized computer devices and an external hard drive.

Authorities say the content included alleged color videos of girls, from ages 3 to 12, in sexually compromising positions with adult males.


During an interview, investigators say Lancos denied having any involvement with child pornography, but he was arrested and taken away from the park in handcuffs.

Lancos will face a formal arraignment on Aug. 27.
