LENOIR, NC (WBTV) -

A Lenoir man was arrested on child pornography charges after an online investigation led to the search of his apartment, according to the Lenoir Police Department.

On April 26, at 1:30 p.m. Lenoir Police detectives and the State Bureau of Investigation executed the search warrant at Cedar Hills Apartments after an internet-based investigation revealed that Curtis Benjamin Kacludis, 31, was in possession of multiple images that depicted children in a lewd manner or children involved in sex acts, investigators said.

As a result of the search and computer seizure, along with interviews, Kacludis was arrested and charged with three counts each of felony second degree sexual exploitation of a minor (distribution) and felony third degree sexual exploitation of a minor (possession).

He was taken to the Caldwell County Detention Center, where he awaits a probable cause hearing in Lenoir district court, scheduled for May 16.

Police tell WBTV the investigation is ongoing, and that further charges are possible.
