DOVER, DEL. — The state Attorney General’s Office say an airman at Dover Air Force Base has been charged with 25 counts of dealing in child pornography.
Prosecutors say that 37 year-old Joel W. Thorpe was arrested Monday. He is being held on $375,000 cash bail. It could not be immediately determined if Thorpe has a lawyer.
Authorities say Thorpe became a person of interest during an investigation into the online distribution of child pornography. Officials say a search warrant served on Thorpe’s home turned up numerous computers and digital devices, and prosecutors say multiple images of child pornography were recovered.
