Kellam was led into court in handcuffs and shackles  for his first appearance.  He was ordered held without bond.

Last week he tried to get 9 and 10-year old brothers to get into his van as they walked home from school. He was arrested Monday when he approached them again.

They confiscated evidence from Kellam's van, but they will not say what that evidence is.

Dougherty County School Police Chief Troy Conley said  "Some findings that were revealed through the course of the investigation has helped us piece together the entire aspects of what his intentions were."

School Police are contacting investigators in Tifton and several cities in Florida where Kellam has lived to give them information they learned from Kellam's interview.
