    Police say Nicholas Carrallo admitted he had been collecting pornography of kids as young as infants for the past four years and admitted to having two terabytes of child porn saved on hard drives, according to the affidavit.

    A Delaware county man is being called a "collector" of child pornography, according to a Delaware County Times.

    An affidavit of probable cause states that police visited Nicholas Carrallo, 57, at his home on the 2200 block of Sproul Road in Broomall on March 26. During that visit, police say Carrallo admitted he had been collecting pornography of kids as young as infants for the past four years and admitted to having two terabytes of child porn saved on hard drives, according to the affidavit.

    A few days later he surrendered on more than 1,000 counts of felony sexual child abuse and other charges, according to the affidavit.

    Detective Lt. David C. Peifer, supervisor of the Delaware County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, told the Delaware County Times that the online investigation into Carrallo began at the beginning of March. He told the newspaper that they found two hard drives along with more than 900 CDs of child pornography at Carrallo's home.

    Peifer told the newspaper that this was the largest amount of child pornography found in one spot since the task force was launched in 1999.

    Carrallo was free Tuesday after posting 10 percent of $50,000 bail, according to court documents.
