Maryland State Police announced charges Friday against a Churchton man alleging he possessed and distributed child pornography.
According to police, an investigator identified a computer last summer that was distributing what was believed to be child pornography on a file sharing network. The officer traced the computer to a residence in Churchton.
Police searched the residence of Drew Ellis Lindsley, 32, and found digital evidence suggesting he had child pornography in his possession and was distributing some files.
Police arrested Lindsley and charged him with two counts of distributing and two counts of possessing child pornography.
Lindsley was released on a $75,000 bond and no court date has been announced, as of mid-day Friday.
Investigation into fighting child pornography was part of the Maryland Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
