TOOELE — A Tooele man who sent his iPad away to be fixed now faces felony charges after police say the repair shop found child pornography.

Anton G. Kasalek, 41, was charged Wednesday in 3rd District Court with two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony.

On Jan. 29, Tooele police were contacted by a police detective in Hartland, Wisconsin.

A company in Wisconsin had received an iPad to replace a screen, “and while working on the device employees discovered what they believed to be child pornography,” according to a search warrant affidavit.

The officer in Wisconsin learned that the iPad was sent from a store in Salt Lake City and the name on the intake order was “Tony Kasalek,” the warrant states.

Police in Tooele were then contacted and “found at least two images of child pornography on Mr. Kasalek’s phone and iPad” after serving their own warrant, charging documents state.
