Dropbox Helps Iredell County Detectives Catch Teen Accused Of Uploading Child Pornography

MOORESVILLE, NC — A 19-year-old in Iredell County is facing multiple charges related to the sexual exploitation of a minor. Bradley Pitts was arrested on Friday as part of an investigation by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office (ICSO).

In October of 2018, the ICSO says they received a report from Dropbox, an online personal cloud storage and backup service, about several images and videos being uploaded to an account that possibly contained child pornography.

According to the ICSO, Dropbox was able to capture the account’s IP address and information, which investigators then traced to a home on Spruce Street in Mooresville.

Pitts was arrested and charged with five counts of Felony Third Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor. He has been placed under a $30,000 bond.
