A tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children led Colorado Springs police to a Security man accused of sending child pornography images through a smartphone app, according to police reports.

Glen Ardell Douglas, Jr., 36, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of sexual exploitation of a child and booked into the El Paso County jail, records show.

The tip stated that someone using the screen name "skyeye719" had been chatting about molesting children in a smartphone app called "the lobby," and used the app "KiK" to send child pornography images to a person in Missouri, police said.

Detectives traced the IP address to a residence on the 1900 block of Hallam Avenue in Security, east of U.S. 85/87.

Douglas allegedly admitted to using the screen name and email address after a search warrant was executed at his home and police found digital images of child pornography, police said.

Douglas is scheduled to appear at the El Paso County courthouse on May 23, records show.
