TODAY'S TOP STORY
Philly Officer Charged with Child Porn, Sexual Abuse of Children: A Philadelphia Police officer has been charged with possession of child porn and sexual abuse of children. Officer Emmanuel Folly, 25, surrendered to the Philadelphia Police Department’s Internal Affairs Unit Tuesday. In March of 2016, members of the Special Victims Unit used a program to search for people viewing, downloading and sharing child pornography. They discovered an IP address that downloaded child porn that was registered to a home on the 3300 block of North 15th Street in Philadelphia, officials said. On Nov. 17, 2016 members of the Special Victims Unit executed a search and seizure warrant at the home and seized a laptop computer, desktop computer and computer tablet. Investigators also determined Folly lived at the home with his parents, officials said. After further investigation, police determined Folly owned the laptop computer that contained child pornography. Folly, who is a three-year veteran of the Department assigned to the 18th District, was arrested and charged with sexual abuse of children, possession of child pornography, and dissemination of child pornography.

WHAT YOU MISSED YESTERDAY
Funeral Director Forges Death Certificate Signatures: The owner of a Bucks County funeral home is accused of falsifying death certificates by forging doctors’ signatures and collecting more than $100,000 in social security disability benefits despite being able to work. David Wayne Faust, 52, of Hulmeville, is charged with theft by deception, forgery, tampering with public records, receiving stolen property, identity theft, insurance fraud and other related offenses. Faust, who owns the Faust Funeral Home on 902 Bellevue Avenue in Penndel, illegally filled in the names, titles, license numbers, addresses and signatures of seven different doctors on death certificates for seven people whose funerals his business handled between 2015 and 2016, according to investigators.
AROUND THE WORLD
Judge Blocks Trump Order on Sanctuary City: A federal judge on Tuesday blocked President Donald Trump's attempt to withhold funding from "sanctuary cities" that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration officials, saying the president has no authority to attach new conditions to federal spending. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the preliminary injunction in two lawsuits — one brought by the city of San Francisco, the other by Santa Clara County — against an executive order targeting communities that protect immigrants from deportation. The injunction will stay in place while the lawsuits work their way through court. The judge rejected the administration's argument that the executive order applies only to a relatively small pot of money and said Trump cannot set new conditions on spending approved by Congress.
3 Teens Return $17K to School After Finding on Ground: Three South Jersey teens were honored for their honesty after they found thousands of dollars on the ground and returned the money to the school it belonged to. Fabian Villanueva, 14, was walking in Vineland, New Jersey last December when he found a clear envelope holding more than $17,000 in cash and checks behind a fence and covered with leaves outside of a home. Fabian, a freshman at Cumberland County Technical Education Center, showed the money to his older brother Nichael Villanueva and his friend Christopher Diaz. “My mom and my dad always taught me, what’s not yours you’ve got to hand it back,” Fabian said. And that’s exactly what the three teens did. Diaz’s father called police who took the money and gave it to the school it belonged to, the Vineland Campus of the Spanish Eastern School of Theology (SEST). The school’s financial secretary Noreen Bermudez lives across the street from where Fabian found the money. She was distraught when she realized the money was missing from her car before she could deposit it. She told NBC10 she was moved to tears when she found out the teens returned it to the school.
