Mom claims porn was found on tablet purchased for son at NC Kmart

MONROE, N.C. — A mother in Monroe is outraged, claiming child pornography popped up on a new electronic tablet she purchased for her son.

According to WSOC, Lisa Escobar said the graphic images popped up on her son’s tablet while he was watching a movie … just hours after she gave it to him.

The Trio tablet came from a Kmart in Monroe.

Escobar says she took the tablet back to Kmart the next day, where employees referred her to the Monroe Police Department.

Police say they are in the process of determining whether or not it was child pornography and that tech experts will then attempt to trace the IP address to the person who downloaded it onto the tablet.

They say this could be a difficult task considering the number of people who had access to the tablet prior to Escobar’s purchase.

The maker of the Trio tablet, Mach Speed Technologies, sent WSOC a statement that read, “We were notified this morning of the alleged incident with one of our Trio Tablets. We never have had such a thing happen with one of our products. We certainly understand the inappropriateness of the allegations and plan to investigate fully. We will work with law enforcement and its partners to determine exactly what happened.”

Kmart issued the following statement: “We take this matter very seriously and are conducting our own investigation.”
