The North Jersey founder of a nature tour company operating from the Jersey Shore north to Poughkeepsie and southern Connecticut was arrested by federal Homeland Security agents on charges of trafficking child porn.

Vaughn Tiedeman, 46, of Living Adventure Tours, was ordered held without bail by a federal judge in Newark Monday afternoon on a charge of distributing child pornography.

Between July 2018 and January 2019, Tiedeman, of West Milford, “distributed at least 50 videos and 100 images depicting the sexual abuse of children via the BitTorrent peer-to-peer network,” U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito said.

Based in Hopatcong, Living Adventure Tours says it offers biking, hiking, kayaking and snowshoe tours, with transportation equipment and guide services, in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

Carpenito credited special agents with the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Newark Field Office and thanked the West Milford Police Department, the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service for their assistance in the investigation.

Handling the case for the government is Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah A. Sulkowski.
