Delaware County District Attorney Katayoun M. Copeland said Charles Anthony Orlando, of the 2900 block of Concord Road in Aston, was charged with 25 counts of possession of child pornography and criminal use of communication facility, both felonies of the third degree.

On June 22, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received multiple reports from  Google that a subscriber later identified as Orlando had uploaded more than 350 images of alleged child pornography to his Google Photos account. As a result, Sgt. Kenneth Bellis of the county District Attorney’s Office Criminal Investigation Division and a member of the Pennsylvania Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force launched an investigation and obtained a search warrant for Orlando’s home.

On July 24, approximately 6:30 p.m., a search warrant was executed at Orlando’s trailer residence by CID detectives and the Aston Township Police Department. Orlando was home at the time of the search and allowed detectives into the trailer without incident. During the search, the defendant’s cell phone was confiscated from the property. A preliminary examination of the recovered cell phone identified at least 25 images of child pornography. Sergeant Bellis confirmed the images as child pornography which depicted naked infants or prepubescent girls between the ages 3 and 10-years-old.

"Those who possess child pornography contribute to the appalling and repulsive exploitation of innocent children,” said the district attorney. “In partnership with our local police, detectives with CID and the ICAC Task Force actively work on a daily basis to locate and arrest these individuals. I would like to commend CID Sergeant Kenneth Bellis and the ICAC Task Force, as well as the Aston Township Police, for their immediate response to this report, and continued work to apprehend these perpetrators.”

Orlando was remanded to the George W. Hill CorrectionalFacility after failing to post $150,000 cash bail. The preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 8.
