Cornerstone will get the Montgomery County ED/GE fund grant to bring at least 68 jobs and an annual payroll of at least $5.3 million to Miamisburg, according to that city’s records.

Cornerstone would move from 2750 Indian Ripple Road in Beavercreek Twp. to 510 Earl Blvd. after United Grinding North America vacates its long-time home.

Police were able to link the phone to Hemphill, who allowed police to search it, and multiple child porn videos were found, the documents read.

Hemphill admitted to police that he knew he had the child porn on the phone and knew the people in the videos were juveniles, court records showed.

Hemphill is scheduled for his arraignment on Jan. 23.
