A Detroit man is facing federal child pornography charges, officials said Friday.

He was arrested by troopers with the state police Computer Crimes Unit, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and agents with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Pace is scheduled to be turned over to U.S. Marshals after a detention hearing.

Officials said members of the task force became aware that Pace was possessing and sharing child pornography in November. Further investigation and the execution of a warrant at his home led to officers seizing several items and evidence that revealed Pace was producing the child sexually abusive material, according to authorities.
