- A Girl Scout leader in Howard County has been arrested for possessing and distributing child pornography, according to officials.

Maryland State Police said 45-year-old Stacy Mizrahi of Ellicott City, Maryland was arrested after an investigation was launched in August.

Authorities said the Maryland State Police Computer Crimes Unit was able to track child pornography discovered online to an IP address which led them to Mizrahi’s home.

Investigators went to Mizrahi’s home Thursday morning and found multiple images and videos of child pornography, according to police.

Mizrahi volunteers with the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland, according to officials, and along with two other women, he is a leader of Troop No. 715.

Detectives said there was no evidence at this time that the child pornography involved children enrolled in the Girl Scouts or his troop.

Mizrahi was charged with four counts of possession of child pornography and one count of distribution of child pornography. Anyone with information that could aid detectives in their investigation was urged to call (800) 637-5437. Callers can remain anonymous.
