OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation’s Internet Crimes Against Children Unit arrested a 29-year-old Oklahoma City man after receiving a cybertip that a social media user was producing child pornography and then transmitting the images.

The tip came from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children on Nov. 14. The ICAC Unit began investigating and identified the child that was photographed as an 18-month-old from Elk City. An arrest warrant was issued for 29-year-old Brandon Kyle and on Nov. 15, he was taken into custody by OSBI agents, with assistance from the Grady County Sheriff’s Office.

Kyle is currently facing one count of Lewd or Indecent Acts to a Child and one count of Attempted Distribution of Child Pornography. He was booked into the Grady County Jail on Friday and later extradited to Greer County where he is still in custody on a $150,000 bond.
