Following an investigation by ATF’s Baltimore Field Division, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations, Postal Inspectors Washington Division, and the Charles County Sheriff's Office, Md., 31-year-old Caleb Andrew Bailey of Waldorf, Md. has been sentenced to more than 16 years in prison for possession of child pornography and unregistered National Firearms Act weapons, including machine guns and destructive devices that were found in an underground bunker.
At Bailey’s residence, law enforcement located the bunker containing machine guns, machine gun manufacturing parts and devices, explosives, unregistered short-barreled rifles, and destructive devices; covert recording devices; and child pornography on electronic devices. In total, Bailey recorded over 100 videos of the victims between March 2014 and January 2016. The forensic analysis revealed that, in addition to the child pornography that Bailey produced, Bailey possessed other images and videos of child pornography on various electronic devices, including a hard drive located within his bunker, that do not appear to have been produced by him.
