Farmington Man Arrested On Child Pornography Charge

A joint investigation between Farmington, Avon, and State Police has led to the arrest of a Farmington man on child pornography charges.

This morning, 31-year-old Michael Brown of Main Street was arrested.  Detectives with the Farmington and Avon police departments, as well as those from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force had begun investigating Brown last December.

Agents say Brown had been uploading and trading pornographic images involving children.

They say the alleged victims were between the ages of five and 15-years.

Brown faces charges of obscenity, promoting a minor in an obscene performance, and possession of child pornography.  He is being held on 150-thousand-dollars bond.
