Columbia Police have arrested a man on child pornography charges, officials say.
Barry Julio Lopez, 28, was charged with twelve counts of third degree sexual exploitation of a minor, Columbia Police Chief Skip Holbrook said in a statement released Tuesday.
Lopez is accused of downloading videos of minors engaging in sexual activity to his mobile phone. The department’s fugitive team and agents with the State Law Enforcement Division located Lopez last week near Bush River Road and Interstate-26.
Lopez was taken to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
