Devils: Carol Ann Chellew and Doug Chellew

A Georgia couple of savages is facing child pornography charges after police arrested them in a multi-state sting.

Police say they found an estimated 40,000 child porn images on hundreds of discs and electronics found in the home of Doug and Carol Chellew.

When police arrived at their front door, they say Doug Chellew was in plain sight.

“He was just inside the door. Sitting at his computer. Downloading pornography and on two cell phones, in a chat room with girls we believe were pre-teenaged,” said Jefferson Police Chief Tom Wirthman. Carol Chellew, a recently hired and now fired Jackson County Sheriff's Clerk was in the backyard gardening.

The pair of pedophiles are among the 82 people, including 31 in Georgia, who have been arrested and accused of sexually exploiting children in a multi-state sting.

Dubbed Operation Southern Impact III, the sting was spread over three days across 8 southern states from Florida to West Virginia. It enlisted the work of 200 law enforcement agencies. 

Since Carol Chellew has bonded out, WSB went by her home to try and talk with her about the case.

No one answered. 

Police say she claims she knew nothing about what was going on.

“That’s what she said,” said Wirthman, adding, “And then upon further questioning, later on that evening, she asked for a lawyer."

Investigators are still going through all of the evidence collected during the sting. They rescued 17 children during the operation from multiple states.

Closer to home, a Metter man, 39-year-old Timothy Wayne Diggs, was arrested in the operation on charges of sexual exploitation and possession of marijuana. According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, he is an information technology specialist.
