A Gainesville man with pornographic photos of children on his cellphone was arrested Friday night after his girlfriend saw the images, according to an arrest report.

Michael Wayne Kelley, 31, of 3500 Windmeadows Blvd., Apt. 17, was charged with possession of a photograph of a sexual performance by a child, Gainesville police reported.

Kelley's girlfriend suspected he was seeing another woman and began looking through the photos on his cellphone, police said. She came upon the child photos and told a friend, who in turn called police.

Under police questioning, Kelley said the photos were of girls ages three to five, the arrest report states. He reportedly also told police he had traded photos with other people through text messaging.
