Court documents say an 18-year-old Caesar Rodney High School student was arrested on child pornography charges after authorities found images on his computer. The charging documents say John Gallegos was charged after state police detectives learned about a person operating a computer with shared child pornography files. Working with Comcast Cable Communications, police traced the computer's Internet address to a location on Pineview Drive in the Dover area.

A search of the hard drive uncovered 23 images and three videos. Charging documents say Gallegos acknowledged downloading the files with the file-sharing program called LimeWire.

He faces 20 counts of using a computer to unlawfully depict a child engaging in a prohibited sexual act.
