HAMPSTEAD, Md. (WJZ) — Two Carroll County men were arrested early Thursday morning on child pornography charges, according to Maryland State Police.

The suspects have been identified as Matthew Robert Curtis, and Tyler Hayden Curtis, both 23, of Hampstead, Maryland.

Matthew Curtis is charged with two counts of distribution of child pornography and seven counts of possession of child pornography.

Tyler Curtis is charged with five counts of possession of child pornography.

Both men, who are siblings, were arrested without incident and taken to the Carroll County Detention Center for processing.

In April 2020, Maryland State Police received a tip involving the distribution of child pornography online.

The investigation led to the identification of the suspects and their residence in Carroll County.

Officials served a search warrant at the suspects’ residence and found electronic devices with multiple child pornography files.

Both suspects are registered sex offenders following previous child pornography convictions.

    I guess their previous convictions (for which they served NO TIME IN JAIL) sure taught them a lesson! They need to lock these predators up and throw away the key- sexual crimes against kids are the lowest of the low.

    Oh yes, we taxpayers have to foot the bill for their defense. Tyler has been arrested for trespassing on school property- a registered child sax offender and again they did not lock him up? I wish court records also contained the name of the judges who let these predators off w/ not even a slap on the wrist!

    isn’t it a hoot kiddie porn afficionados are almost always fat white guys who probably still live in their parents basement?

    They should send them to jail this time- I hear they really love guys like that in prison- don’t drop the soap

    I’m glad my tax money pays room and board at the big house for guys like these two. Even with 100% recidivism, the twice daily beatings will at least teach them there are consequences.
