Walter Hayes - Child Pornography

A 43-year-old New Castle area man wanted by Maryland authorities for possessing child pornography was arrested early today at his Delaware home by New Castle County police.

Walter Hayes, of the first block of Melanie Drive in the Melanie Woods community, was committed to the Young Correctional Institution in lieu of $20,000 on fugitive charges.

County police spokesman Cpl. Trinidad Navarro said Hayes was wanted by Harford County authorities on the child pornography offense.

Harford County Sheriff’s Office officials requested that New Castle County police pick him up in Delaware.

Navarro said when officers went to Hayes’ home at about 2:04 a.m. today, they were greeted at the door by Hayes, who was promptly taken into custody.

He is awaiting extradition to Maryland to face charges there.
