17-year-old Kraigen Grooms from Iowa has been arrested for producing child pornography.
Homeland Security says he allegedly photographed himself with a baby girl in North Texas, who was between 12 and 18 months old at the time.
Although he's considered a juvenile, Grooms is being charged as an adult. This arrest is part of an investigation that identified three victims from Lubbock.
Officials say they also identified at least 250 victimized children across 39 states and five countries.
Federal prosecutors targeted a specific website run out of a home in Louisiana; 14 people in connection with this case are all facing federal charges.
