HENRICO (WRIC) - A local man on the run from police for over a year is behind bars facing multiple child pornography charges.

31-year-old Phillip Dietrich was arrested Thursday night in Henrico County, more than a year after indictments were issued in Richmond for his arrest.

Dietrich was wanted for 10 outstanding felony indictments related to the possession of child pornography. Richmond detectives originally found him while conducting an undercover online sting.

"He along with several other people that were not connected but have been sharing child pornography in the Metro Richmond area have been arrested over the course of the last year or so," says Det. Kevin Hiner.

Police are constantly running undercover online operations looking for who have or are making or distributing child pornography.
