An 18-year-old from Franklinton was arrested Wednesday by Raleigh police after possessing photos of naked under aged boys.
Mitchell Franklin Louws would pose as a woman online to solicit compromising photos from boys, ages 13 and 14, said Jim Sughrue of the Raleigh Police Department.
Sughrue said that Louws would then threaten to post or recirculate the photos.
Louws is charged with first degree sex exploitation of a minor and two counts of extortion.
His bond is set at $50,000.
