A South Carolina man wanted on more than a dozen child sexual exploitation charges may be armed and dangerous, officials said.
The S.C. Attorney General’s Office and Crimestoppers is searching for Anthony Ray “Hammer” Nielson, according to a news release from Crimestoppers.
Charges against Nielson include 10 counts of third degree sexual exploitation of a minor and four counts of second degree sexual exploitation of a minor. Officials said the charges stem from child pornography.

Officials said he’s an avid motorcycle rider and is considered armed and dangerous.
