Bloomington man arrested on child porn charges

BLOOMINGTON - After an investigation spanning more than a year, a Bloomington man is in custody for child pornography charges.

35-year-old Carthell Nibbelin was arrested Tuesday on the charges. Normal Police had been investigating Nibbelin since March 2016. At that time, police had served a search warrant at his home on College Avenue. They collected numerous items of evidence and the Bloomington Police Cyber Crimes Unit conducted a forensic examination. The investigation found more than 2,400 images and videos. 

Nibbelin is being held at the McLean County jail with his bond set at $100,000. He faces 10 counts of possession of child pornography involving children younger than 13.
