Springs man arrested for child exploitation

A Colorado Springs man accused of creating child pornography is behind bars.

Court documents obtained by News 5 indicate the alleged victim is only 5 years old.

Nick Chandler was arrested in Florida Tuesday and charged with sexual exploitation of a child.

"He was a normal average person," one neighbor said. "Now it's kind of scary knowing he was so close especially with all the kids that we have in the park here."

Chandler resided at a mobile home community near Airport and Powers. When detectives searched his home last month, they say they found more than 100 explicit images Chandler had taken with the 5-year-old girl as he allegedly touched her. Furniture in the pictures matched furnishings in Chandler's home. Police also say a tattoo on the suspect's hand matched one of Chandler's.

At this time, there's no indication that any other victims are involved. However, authorities did find pictures of a teenage girl in her bikini by a pool on Chandler's computer.

A laptop computer and memory card were confiscated as evidence.
