State Police say a priest who resigned from a Waterford Church last week has been arrested in a child pornography investigation that streyched across the country.  In May,  Los Angeles Police asked for Connecticut State Police help with an investigation involving a possible suspect here.

Police say America OnLine provided information about suspected e-mailed child pornography using an AOL e-mail account,  which led them to serve a search warrant at the St. Paul Parish on Rope Ferry Road in Waterford. where they seized various items.

Police say reviewing the evidence they seized led to their application for an arrest warrant for 65-year-old Dennis Carey.  He is charged with possession of child pornography. Police are asking anyone with any additional information in the investigation to come forward.
