A 20-year-old man and four juveniles face felony charges for child pornography in Bellevue.

The Bellevue Police Department says the arrests are the result of an investigation beginning on October, 30, 2015, when investigators received a report of teens using cellphones to exchange sexually explicit images of children.

One of the suspects, 20-year-old Nickolas Jamison, was ordered held on $100,000 bond on Friday, after investigators arrested him on Wednesday for charges of distribution of pornography to a minor, possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography and conspiracy to commit a felony.

The names of the four other suspects are not being released because of their age.

All four, two boys and two girls, face charges of distribution of child pornography.  One of the boys also faces a charge of possession of child pornography, along with the two girls.  One of the girls has an additional charge of conspiracy to commit a felony.

Police say they were all released to the custody of their parents.
