MOUNT HOLLY – An Air Force man was arrested on child-pornography charges Wednesday at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.

Donovan Balthazor, a 30-year-old Browns Mills resident, was charged with possession and distribution of child pornography, according to the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office.

Numerous digital devices were seized Wednesday during a search of Balthazor’s home on the 400 block of North Carolina Trail, the prosecutor’s office said.

It said an investigation began when the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children alerted the prosecutor’s office to concerns over Balthazor’s online activities. Investigators then learned Balthazor had shared a photo online depicting a nude pre-pubescent girl.

Balthazor, formerly of Tampa, was released pending trial.

He was ordered not to have unsupervised contact with minors and was forbidden from accessing
the Internet unless it is on a government computer for work purposes, the prosecutor’s office said.
