11 News is continuing to investigate the local man implicated in a massive international child porn ring. Scott Lewandowski, of Pueblo, is charged with possession of the material. While there are no current abuse charges against him, the investigation is continuing.

The U.S. Attorney in Colorado says Lewandowski is not facing charges of actually abusing any kids. As far as he the U.S. Attorney’s office is concerned, he is accused of possession the material, but not creating any.

Special agents searched Scott Lewandowski's home on Pinecrest Drive as part of Operation Delego. The case involves 72 people who've already been charged, and more than 500 others around the world, according to Homeland Security. Lewandowski is one of two men in Colorado arrested in this case.

Neighbors say they knew something was up when special agents swarmed his home. They told 11 news they didn't know Lewandowski and the woman who lived with him. At one point the yard was so overgrown, they wondered if people even lived there.

"Nothing surprises me because I knew nothing about them,” Thelma Adamson said.

Operation Delego was launched in 2009 into a website known as "Dreamboard." Homeland Security describes it as an online bulletin board "created and operated to promote pedophilia and encourage the sexual abuse of very young children." 11 News knocked on Lewandowski's door to see if anyone inside would talk to us, but they declined.

Investigators say numerous Dreamboard members personally created child pornography. The more kids they abused, the more images they posted, the higher their status in the group. Twenty of the 72 charged have not been arrested yet.

The spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s office says the investigation is ongoing.

    Thank you, KKTV, for leaving out the sordid details unlike your competitors who felt the need to describe the horrific photos that were found. I about lost my breakfast. After a fair trial and if convicted, I hope these fellows rot in jail with many a cell buddy to keep them warm at night.

    So, what's with Pueblo making national news regarding pedophilia?! First the pro-pedophilia book from the Pueblo guy being sold on Amazon and now this... Do they need a new slogan? Like "Virginia is for Lovers..." only, "Pueblo is for Pedophiles?"

    So they use our tax dollars to set up internet places to encourage people to abuse children, and give them a "score" for posting more than the next guy. That is sick. Then they still havent caught all the perverts they created. Glad to be an american?
