A military member was arrested at Sheppard Air Force Base Thursday on accusations of having child pornography.

Joel Lavelle Calahan, 37, is charged with five counts of possession of child pornography — a third degree felony. He was released from the Wichita County Jail Friday afternoon on $50,000 total bail.

Sgt. Harold McClure, a Wichita Falls Police Department spokesperson, said an arrest warrant was served Wednesday morning at SAFB due to Calahan being a service member.

An ongoing review of the stored data revealed thousands of images, including images of children in various stages of undress and under the age of 18 with their genitalia exposed in “a lewd and lascivious manner.”

The images listed in the charges each depicted a completely nude prepubescent girl around the ages of 7 to 10 years old.

  1. From yesterday’s “News of the Force”:
    Texas church shooter Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, is a former member of the U.S. Air Force who was stationed at Holloman AFB, N.M., where he was court martialed and received a bad conduct discharge for assaulting his wife and their son. President Trump has described the suspect as “deranged.” Kelley’s Facebook page, which has been taken down, was filled with “Antifa” propaganda. Antifa had also said that yesterday would mark the beginning of their terror attacks across America. Kelley was in the Air Force from 2010 to 2014.

  2. The Texas Church shooter has been identified as 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, previously a member of the US Air Force who served at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico from 2010 until his discharge, according to Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek.

    • You should do a story on the stunning fact that the US Air Force confessed today that it failed to record the Texas church shooter’s domestic violence conviction in a federal database that would have kept him from buying firearms.
