FORESTVILLE, Md. (CBSDC) — Maryland State Police arrested 22-year-old Chandler Earl Vines on child pornography charges Thursday morning.

Authorities launched an investigation into Vines’ computer habits after they received information from the Air Force Office of Special Investigations at Joint Base Andrews.

Air Force investigators discovered a suspect sharing child porn on a peer-to-peer network and turned the information over to Maryland State Police who were able to trace files back to Vines’ home in the 7000 block of Flag Harbor Drive in Forestville.

A search warrant was executed on the residence Thursday morning.

Maryland State Police say they found child pornography on Vines’ computer during a preliminary review of the machine. Further investigation and a detailed computer forensic examination will be conducted at a later date.

Vines has been charged with two counts each of distribution and possession of child pornography. If convicted, he faces to up to 30 years in prison.

The 22-year-old was processed at the Forestville Barrack. He is currently awaiting an appearance before a Prince George’s County Court Commissioner for a bond hearing.
