CANADIAN COUNTY, Okla. — Authorities in Oklahoma arrested a 15-year-old earlier this month in what they are calling “one of the worst” cases of child pornography they have encountered.

Authorities were alerted to a high volume of graphic pre-pubescent child pornography being distributed from a home in Mustang, Oklahoma, according to KFOR.

When investigators with the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office showed up at the home on July 19 to execute a search warrant, the 15-year-old reportedly opened the door and quickly closed it.

Investigators pushed the door open and entered the home. When investigators determined no adults were home at the time, officers “secured the juvenile suspect until his guardians were contacted and returned to the residence.”

While waiting for the teen’s guardians to come home, investigators executed the search warrant. On the teen’s computer, officials reportedly found “over 300 videos and images of pre-pubescent child pornography depicting children as young as 4 years old being raped and sexually exploited.”

When the teen’s guardians arrived home, authorities interviewed the teen and and he confessed.

Other electronic devices seized during the investigation contained over 1,000 videos and images of pre-pubescent child pornography, according to the sheriff’s office.

“This case is absolutely one of the worst we’ve encountered involving a juvenile suspect and child pornography.  It’s hard to comprehend how anyone, and especially a kid this young gets involved so deep into the hideous world of child pornography,” Canadian County Undersheriff Chris West said in the news release.

The teen suspect was arrested and taken to the Juvenile Detention Center.
