A Smyrna teen has been arrested on child pornography charges following allegations of child pornography on his cell phone.

Police said the allegations of possession of child pornography led to Smyrna Police Department executing a search warrant on the man's cell phone, which revealed that he had multiple photos containing child pornography on his phone.

Police obtained an arrest warrant and the man was taken into custody by Capitol Police in the Kent County Courthouse.

Police said Walter Wesley White, 18, of Smyrna, was transported to the Smyrna Police Department where he was charged with 24 counts of possession of child pornography.

White was presented at Justice of the Peace Court No. 8 and later released on a $3,000 secured bond, pending a later court appearance.
