Court paperwork shows that two Avondale brothers downloaded and even organized their child pornography videos into various folders for "several years"

Police say the Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force learned of an internet address that was distributing videos containing child pornography. One of the addresses the videos was sent to is a home in Avondale near Central Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road. 

On February 15, police raided the home of 28-year-old David Thomas Molina and his brother Ignacio Antonio Molina, finding a desktop computer and an external hard drive containing numerous images and videos of child pornography. Police say the video files were organized into folders separating adult pornography from the child porn. 

Police report that some of the children depicted in the videos were just toddlers.

Ignacio reportedly told investigators that he has been downloading child porn "for several years."

Both brothers deny ever touching any children themselves, but authorities are concerned since children pass by their home on the way to and from school every day.

The brothers have been charged with multiple counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
