Edward A. Truax, 44, was taken into custody June 16.

Members of the state Child Predator Task Force executed a search warrant at Truax’s home in the unit block of Buttercup Lane, said Delaware Department of Justice spokesman Carl Kanefsky.

Detectives searched Truax’s home, seizing a number of electronic devices for examination, Kanefsky said. During a forensic review, detectives found more than 25 videos and images of child pornography, he said.

Truax is charged with 25 counts of dealing in child pornography, and is being held at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna, in default of a $1.25 million secured bail.
