DeKALB – A 20-year-old DeKalb man faces 10 counts of child pornography after police said he borrowed someone’s laptop and uploaded sexual images.

DeKalb police received a call Sunday from a person who found child pornography on his or her laptop after allowing Brenton C. Strobert, of the 100 block of Andersen Court, use it, court records show. The person gave police the laptop Sunday.

Strobert went to the DeKalb police station Monday after he learned police had the laptop, saying he wanted to talk to police about the laptop, DeKalb detective Lt. Bob Redel said.

Police found 26 images of child pornography on the laptop, including images of girls younger than 13, court records show.
