BAY COUNTY, Fl. – A 22-year-old Springfield man, Michael Hellum, has been arrested by Bay County Sheriff’s on child pornography charges. The arrest came after authorities received a tip from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

Hellum allegedly circulated child pornography videos on social media and sold them to individuals who reached out to him. Upon arriving at his Springfield home, investigators found him attempting to delete videos. Officials stated that at least two girls under the age of 14 were sexually depicted in the videos.

Hellum is facing two counts of promoting the sexual performance of a child, with his bond set at $10,000.
