DOVER, Del.–  An undercover online investigation by the Delaware Child Predator Task Force into the distribution of child pornography has led to the arrest of a Dover man, the state Attorney General's Office announced Friday. 

Officials said that as a result of the investigation, detectives from the Child Predator Task Force and troopers from Delaware State Police Troop #3 executed a search warrant Thursday at a home located on the 600 block of Deer Track Road, Dover.

Investigators said that during the search multiple computers and external storage devices, along with several additional digital media devices were seized. In additioin, a resident of the address was developed as a person of interest and taken to DSP Troop #3 for further investigation.  A forensic preview of the evidence revealed multiple files of child pornography on a computer owned by the person of interest.

As a result of the investigation detectives on Thursday arrested the person of interest, 24-year-old Benjamin L. Byler, and charged him with 25 counts of dealing in child pornography.  Byler was arraigned via videophone by JP Court #2 and was taken to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in lieu of $500,000 secured bail.
