WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston County investigators have arrested a 52-year-old registered sex offender after authorities say they found child pornography on the man's phone. 

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office charged Craig Douglas Keeling of West Ashley with seven counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. 

A bond hearing is scheduled for Friday night. 

Keeling's charges stems from an investigation conducted on Tuesday at the suspect's home on Dove Haven Court. 

Agents with the SC Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services conducted a routine home visit where agents located a cell phone that authorities say Keeling was attempting to hide. 

Agents reported that when they viewed the phone there were pictures on the screen of nude, underage children. 

An affidavit states a picture on Keeling's phone had a nude girl between the ages of 10 and 12. 

Authorities say Keeling admitted to saving the photos from the internet to his email.

Court records state Keeling was convicted in November of 2010 of committing a lewd act on a minor.
