Las Cruces man accused of posting child pornography on Twitter

By: Jesse Martinez
LAS CRUCES, N.M. A 34-year-old man is accused of manufacturing, possessing and distributing child pornography, police said.

Police received a tip that Twitter user webgremlin69 uploaded sexually explicit images of children and police traced the users IP address to Bradley Willts home.

On Tuesday police executed a search warrant at Willts apartment on 1804 Wyoming Ave. and found 80 printed photographs of nude or partially nude young girls that were about 7 to 8 years of age, police said.

Through their investigation police determined Willt, 34, bought a large amount of images from various websites and collected thousands of child pornography images that were either stored on his computer or downloaded to CDs.

Police also determined that Willt used social media to speak to children under the age of 16 and engaged in sexually explicit conversations with them.

Wilt was charged with three counts of sexual exploitation of children and was booked into the county jail with bail set at $500,000 cash only.

It is not known if Willt had any interaction with local children, but anyone who may have been in contact with him or has any suspicion of an interaction between Willt and a juvenile is asked to call police at 575-526-0795.
