DALLAS TWP. - A man denied having child pornography on a computer and an external hard drive that authorities allege contained 15 files of children engaged in sex acts, according to charges filed.

Caleb Daniel Fox, 25, of Homestead Drive, was arraigned Monday night on 17 counts of child pornography and a single count of criminal use of communication facility. He remained jailed Tuesday at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail.

According to the criminal complaint filed by the state Office of Attorney General:

A special agent with the AG’s Child Predator Unit tracked child pornography being downloaded by a computer traced to Fox’s residence.

A search warrant was served on Monday when authorities found a desktop and four laptop computers inside the Homestead Drive house.

Fox claimed his laptop is password protected and used a file sharing computer program. He stopped using the file sharing program because child pornography used to be all over the program, the complaint says.

Authorities said in the complaint Fox denied he downloaded child pornography.

A forensic analysis of an external hard drive and a cell phone located 15 images of children engaged in sex acts, the complaint says.
