Police in Charlotte have raided two homes and seized a large amount of child porn, warrants in the case show.

Two men have been arrested after a detective in Cabarrus County traced the origin of the child porn to computers in Charlotte.

Leon Jameson, was arrested on Sept. 6 and charged with 12 counts of third degree sexual exploitation of a minor, according to the Mecklenburg County Jail.

Gregorio Arenas, was charged with six counts of third degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Investigators were tipped off to the two when they exchanged child porn with a detective in Cabarrus County, according to the warrants.

Both were placed in the Mecklenburg County Jail.
