State police say they’ve arrested a 28-year-old Newtown man on felony charges following a months-long investigation into emailed child pornography files.
Edward Wilson, of 12 Hillcrest Road, was arrested by warrant Friday and charged with first-degree possession of child pornography, promoting a minor in an obscene performance and obscenity.
According to Lt. J. Paul Vance, a spokesman with the Connecticut State Police, authorities in February received tips that a suspect—eventually tracked to Wilson’s home address—“ appeared to be emailing files of suspected child pornography.”
“Troopers seized several items of evidentiary value from [Wilson’s] residence,” Vance said in a press release.
Further details were not immediately available.
Wilson was held on a $100,000 bond and scheduled to appear Friday in state Superior Court in Danbury.
