Kokomo Man Arrested On Child Exploitation Charges

A Kokomo man that police called “dangerous” was arrested Wednesday on a long list of charges, including Child Exploitation, Possession of Child Pornography and several drug-related charges.

40-year old Gabriel Ellis was arrested along with a 16-year old female runaway that police had also been seeking.

Investigators say Ellis was wanted after police found graphic images on his cell phone following his arrest on un-related charges in January.  But before police could charge him in connection with what they found, Ellis has bonded out of jail and could not be fouond until yesterday.

Police say Ellis was considered armed and dangerous and they feared for the girl, who was found un-harmed.
