A Mooreville man faces multiple felony charges for allegedly possessing child pornography, according to the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office.

Bradley Jay Pitts, 19, who lives in the 600 block of Spruce Street, is charged with five counts of felony third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Deputies were alerted in October 2018 that images and videos that appeared to include child pornography were being uploaded to a Dropbox file-storage account linked to the Spruce Street address, according to a sheriff’s office press release.

An investigation by Sgt. J. Lowrance of the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit, along with the N.C. Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, led to the issuing of a search warrant. Lowrance found Pitts at the home and, after questioning him and gathering evidence, obtained arrest warrants, according to the release.

Pitts was arrested on March 8 and given a $30,000 secured bond.
