A Dover man faces 25 counts of possession of child pornography, including sexually graphic images of children as young as 2.

Robert Grubb III, 22, was arrested Wednesday after an investigation, according to a news release from the office of Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane.

Grubb, who lives at 4053 Fox Run Road, is accused of having more than 500 files of child pornography on his computer.

Agents identified a computer on a peer-to-peer network sharing media files believed to depict child pornography. They then downloaded four of those files, which showed children in graphic sexual acts and poses, and traced the computer's IP address to Grubb, according to the release.

In addition to the possession charges, Grubb is charged with four counts of distribution of child pornography and one count of criminal use of a communication facility.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, July 30.

York County prosecutors are handling the case.

Grubb is one of five Pennsylvania men arrested on child-pornography charges in recent days, according to the news release.
