BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- All we knew at first was that federal agents from Homeland Security were raiding a home in the 100 block of Bernardo Place in Battle Creek.

They were apparently acting on a tip from Canadian Law Enforcers who had come across a website filled with Child Pornography and traced it to the house of a 42-year-old man in Battle Creek. . .

What they allegedly found on his computer were examples of child pornography that they say appeared to have been produced by the suspect, and allegedly included in his image in the pictures.

They are trying to identify the children and whether the images were photographed at the home.

He has been charged in Federal Court in Grand Rapids with Manufacturing Child Pornography, a 20-year felony.
