NORWALK, CT – A Norwalk man has been charged by the New Haven Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation after investigators found lewd and provocative images of juveniles on his computer devices. According to charges filed, Jake Scott Flewellyn, 24, used the messaging application Kik to distribute those videos and photos online.

Vanessa Roberts Avery, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut today announced Flewellyn surrendered to law enforcement yesterday afternoon.

Fkewekkyn appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge S. Dave Vatti in Bridgeport and was released on a $100,000 bond under electronic monitoring.

Court documents show in December, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a report from the provider of the smartphone messaging application Kik about a Kik user who was distributing videos of CASM through its service.

“Kik deactivated the user’s account. In early April 2022, while federal law enforcement was investigating this matter to determine the Kik user’s identity, Kik submitted to NCMEC another report of a user account that was being used to distribute videos of CASM,” the FBI said. “The investigation revealed that Flewellyn created both Kik accounts and used them to distribute images and videos depicting child sex abuse.”
