Investigators believe there may be more victims in the case. If you or anyone you know has concerns about any contact that a child may have had with Arriaga or Cubler, please contact the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office at 610-891-4161 as soon as possible. 

Arriaga was remanded to the Delaware County Jail in lieu of 10 percent of $500,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 22. 

Cubler was remanded to the George W. Hill Correctional Facility on $500,000 cash bail with a preliminary hearing also scheduled for June 22. 

“The couple charged in this case were engaged in the production of child pornography with infant victims,” Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer said. “It is hard to truly express our outrage at such acts of moral depravity. The fact that the victims were infants, and therefore not fully cognizant of what was being done to them, does not turn this into a victimless crime. The full weight of the law will now be used to speak for these helpless, innocent victims.”
