A Raleigh man was arrested Saturday and charged with 12 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor after police seized a cache of child pornography.
Bond was set at $600,000 for Leander Dewey Jones, 61, of 2911 Brentwood Rd.
An arrest warrant filed by Raleigh police said that Jones possessed photographs of children being sexually assaulted by adults or having sex with other children. The police estimated that the children’s age ranged from 9 years old to 18 months. One series of photos showed a young girl, approximately four to six years old, the warrant said, wearing a black leather metal-studded collar, crying in distress as a man attempted to have sex with her.
