A Wilmington man is behind bars on child pornography charges after an out-of-state investigation in North Carolina tipped off Delaware authorities.

The Delaware Child Predator Task Force arrested 27 year-old Brahim M. Kelley on Thursday, charging him with 25 counts of dealing in child pornography. The investigation is ongoing as investigators continue to search through evidence found inside Kelley’s home.

“This arrest demonstrates that we are working effectively with law enforcement partners from across the country to track down predators wherever they are and taking them off the streets,” said Delaware’s Atty. Gen. Beau Biden.

According to the Attorney General’s office, North Carolina authorities initiated the investigation after multiple nude images of a middle school-age girl were posted online. During the investigation, it was determined that pictures were coming from someone in Delaware, that’s when the case was referred to the Delaware Child Predator Task Force. Kelley was eventually identified as the person who posted the images online. During the search of Kelley’s home multiple computers and digital storage devices were seized.

Kelley is being held in the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution.
