A Halethorpe man has been charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.

Theron E. Weimer Jr., 37, of the 5100 block of Westland Blvd., 21227, is held on $150,000 bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

An investigation last month by the Crimes Against Children Unit led detectives to an IP address used by Weimer. The investigation found numerous files containing explicit images of prepubescent girls. The investigation does not show that Weimer sexually abused children.

A search and seizure warrant was executed at the Westland Boulevard address.
