CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A federal grand jury has indicted a Springdale man on allegations that he produced images and videos of child pornography and uploaded them on the Internet.

The indictment charges Timothy McNamee, 55, with a total of four counts and also seeks forfeiture of computers, cameras, video equipment, computer storage media and other items seized from his house when agents executed a search warrant there.

McNamee is charged with production of child pornography, which is punishable by at least 15 and up to 30 years imprisonment. He is also charged with one count of distribution and one count of receipt of child pornography. Each count is punishable by at least five and up to 20 years imprisonment. The indictment further charges McNamee with one count of possession of child pornography, punishable by up to five years imprisonment.

ICE agents patrolling the Internet earlier this year found sexually explicit images of a girl under 13. Further investigation indicated that the images were produced between 2006 and 2009. Investigators tracked the images back to computers they found at McNamee's residence.

Agents and Springdale Police officers arrested McNamee on March 15. He has been in custody since his arrest. He will have an initial appearance before a U.S. Magistrate Judge on April 14.
