DENVER – A long-time Denver police officer was arrested and is facing felony charges for allegedly possessing more than 20 pornographic videos depicting children.

District 5 officer Tim Kelley turned himself in to Westminster police Friday and bonded out the same day. His bond was set at $5,000.

Kelley resigned from the force last week after the department learned the officer was being investigated by Westminster police for having child pornography.

Kelley was first placed on paid leave. He then resigned a few days later. He had been on the force for 19 years. Kelley was a detective in the department's crime lab but went back to patrol when the lab was put under civilian control.

According to court documents, the activity stems at least as far back as January.

Denver police are not commenting on the resignation.
