CAMDEN COUNTY, Ga. -

A day-long operation led to the arrest of three Camden County men Wednesday on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography.

At about 6:30 a.m., deputies served a search warrant at a home on Nature's Bounty Trail in St. Marys. They said after finding what was believed to be child pornography on his computer, 20-year-old Corey Thimlar was arrested.

The next search warrant was served on Miller Street in St. Marys. There investigators said they also found what they believe to be child pornography on a computer belonging to Todd Manley, 47. He was arrested later in the day.

The final search warrant was served on Redwood Street in Kingsland. Officers arrested Bryantt Allen, 24, after investigators said they found what they believe to be child pornography on his computer. The Redwood Street was immediately condemned by city officials because of the squalor and unsafe living conditions, investigators said.

All three men remain in custody on charges of possession of child pornography and distribution of child pornography.

The arrests were the culmination of Operation Guarding Innocence, a statewide initiative by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and local law enforcement agencies.

The local investigations and arrests were conducted by the Camden County Sheriff's Office, the St. Marys Police Department and the Kingsland Police Department. All three agencies are members of ICAC.
