Posted: Updated:

UPDATE (05/02/13): Powers is now facing an additional 105 charges, filed late Wednesday night. The Augusta County Sheriff's Office says as the forensic evidence from his computer comes back, Powers is facing a charge for each picture found. 


ORIGINAL (05/01/13): A Raphine man already facing dozens of child porn and sex charges is behind bars Wednesday on new charges. Darby Powers, 34, was arrested Tuesday on 18 counts of knowingly possessing child pornography.

The Augusta County Sheriff's Office says these are all related to an investigation that first landed him in handcuffs in early March.

Investigators say an illicit photo posted on Twitter led them to discover thousands of pictures on Powers' computer - some showing children as young as 5 years old.

Powers is being held at the Middle River Regional Jail.
