(CBS Connecticut)– 30-year-old Faustino Cotto was arrested outside of his Hartford home Thursday and was charged with Possession of Child Pornography, Promoting a Minor in an Obscene Performance, and Obscenity.

In March, the Hartford Police Department Special Investigation Division discovered that child pornography was being shared over the internet.  They traced the situation to 702 Mary Shepard Place, Cotto’s residence.  After executing a search and seizure warrant, investigators began analyzing a computer and other media related items.  Special Investigations Division detectives then obtained an arrest warrant for Cotto.  More analysis is being done on his computer to determine if more charges will be brought up.
