Authorities say after two days of arrests across Georgia, forensic technicians are scouring the hard drives of more than 100 computers, looking for pornographic images of children.

Authorities had arrested 23 people in the state, including two teenagers, by the end of the day Wednesday. Charges range from sending or receiving child porn.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman John Bankhead said Wednesday that most of "Operation Shattered Innocence" has been completed, but a few more search warrants will be served and more arrests are likely.

A 14-year-old in Forsyth County and a 16-year-old in Logansville are among those arrested on state charges of transmitting child pornography.

Most of the charges are felonies that carry up to 20 years in prison.
