DOVER, Del. - A Dover man is accused of dealing in child pornography.

On Thursday, Attorney General Beau Biden announced that an investigation conducted by the Delaware Child Predator Task Force, lead to the arrest of 22-year-old Derek DeYoung. Officials say their investigation tracked the distribution of child pornography files to a home on Loockerman Street in Dover, which they then searched on Wednesday.

During that search, a computer was seized, and turned over to the Delaware State Police High Technology Crimes Unit for forensic analysis. DeYound was then formally charged with 10 counts of dealing in child pornography, and is being held on $200,000 cash bail.

The Task Force says they are continuing their investigation at this time.

Biden said "Each time an image of video of child pornography is received or shared the abused child is victimized all over again. Through the efforts of our Child Predator Task Force we're acting to put a stop to this illicit and harmful trade."
