Detectives from the Washington State Patrol (WSP) Missing and Exploited Children’s Task Force (MECTF) have arrested a man for dealing in large amounts of sexually explicit material involving minors.

Adrian Kelley-Scholz, 29, of Federal Way, was taken into custody without incident earlier Tuesday (Jan. 28).

The investigation originated after detectives discovered files containing known child pornography were being traded across the internet. Upon further investigation, a search warrant was issued and directed detectives to a residence in Federal Way.

During the morning hours of January 28, 2014, detectives executed a search warrant on a residence in the city of Federal Way and ultimately arrested two occupants; one for the investigation of dealing in sexually explicit conduct involving a minor and an additional male on an unrelated felony warrant. During the search warrant, detectives seized digital media devices from the residence. A forensic preview of some of the devices confirmed the presence of illegal images.

Kelley-Scholz was booked into the King County Jail on multiple charges of Dealing and Possession of Depictions of Minors Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct. An additional male subject was arrested on an outstanding felony warrant. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are possible.

MECTF is a multi-agency task force within the WSP comprised of detectives from the WSP and the Lakewood and Shelton Police Department’s. MECTF provides support to local agencies across the state in cases involving missing and abducted children and child exploitation.
