Police officer in Bradford County accused of having sexual relationship with teen

CANTON, Pa. (WBNG/WENY) — A 26-year-old police officer from Bradford County faces two dozen charges in connection to an alleged sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl.

Joshua Gleco, a police officer with Canton Bourough Police Department, was arrested in January following a 2018 investigation in regards to the teen having sex with a 26-year-old man.

He had originally been charged with four counts of child pornography, three counts of intercepting communications, and one charge of corruption of minors.

According to our Elmira affiliate WENY-TV, court documents show Gleco is now charged with 24 total charges, including 16 intercepting communications charges, seven child pornography charges, and the corruption of minors.

Pictures of Gleco and the teen kissing, along with other images and conversation recordings were found on Gleco’s phone, investigators say.

Gleco had claimed he had a sibling-like relationship with the teen, but police say the conversations he had with the teen are not consistent with that claim.

Gleco is currently in Bradford County Jail, and is scheduled to appear in court on March 13.

The Canton Borough Police Department says Gleco is currently suspended without pay.
