Sicklerville, Clementon Men Arrested in Statewide Child Porn Sting

The two men, who live just outside of Gloucester Township, are among four Camden County residents charged in the sting.

Two men from the Gloucester Township area were among 25 people arrested in a statewide child pornography sting, New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa announced Wednesday morning.

Alfred Bakewell, 64, of Sicklerville, and Ryan Bronchella, 34, Clementon, were two of four Camden County residents charged in Operation Ever Vigilant, which targeted state residents who allegedly were making child pornography, including child rape videos, available to others.

Bakewell, Bronchella and all the others arrested in the sting are charged with second-degree distribution of child pornography and fourth-degree possession of child pornography.

“Anyone who views and distributes child pornography—particularly the type of child rape videos targeted in this operation—puts himself in league with the predators who sexually assault children to create these videos,” Chiesa said in a statement. “The children they watch being tortured are violated again by their actions, and these offenders may pose a danger to other children because of their predilections. We will remain ever vigilant to stop this predatory behavior against children.”

Patch has determined Bakewell is a Winslow Township resident and Bronchella a Borough of Clementon resident. Both men live within minutes of Gloucester Township.

The Operation Ever Vigilant arrests were made last week, and all the defendants had multiple sexually explicit videos of young children, which they had made available to others, Chiesa said.

Those videos and images were passed back and forth among users through emails and by way of file-sharing networks, state officials said, and detectives found what Chiesa said were disturbing sexually explicit videos portraying necrophilia and bestiality during the searches.

One of the Camden County defendants, Brent Ailiff, of West Berlin, allegedly had hundreds of child pornography files, and remains in jail on $100,000 bail.

“Everyone sitting in the seclusion of their darkened homes viewing child rape videos has victimized these innocents by creating the market for this disgusting material,” said Col. Rick Fuentes, Superintendent of the State Police, in a statement. “There’s no room for them to say, ‘I haven’t hurt anyone.’”
