SNEADS FERRY, N.C. (WNCT) — A husband and wife in Sneads Ferry were arrested Saturday on child pornography and child rape charges.

Matthew and Diane Maynard, both 34 years old, each face two counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of statutory rape of a child by an adult.

Onslow County deputies were called to a residence on Old Folkstone Road Saturday due to a report of child pornography.

Deputies determined the couple was involved with sex acts with minors and recorded the act at least one time, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit is continuing to investigate and more charges are expected.

The children were removed from the home and are in the care of the Department of Social Services.

The couple was transported to the Onslow County Detention Center under a $200,000 secured bond each.

Their first appearances in court took place Monday.
