Federal authorities have charged a Danbury letter carrier with possession and distribution of child porn.
According to the U.S. Attorney from Connecticut, an investigation into Paul D'Ambrosio began Aug. 8 when a detective assigned to the Connecticut Computer Crimes Task Force logged into a publicly available file sharing program and downloaded 50 images and 10 videos depicting child pornography from directories maintained by D'Ambrosio.
Agents arrested D'Ambrosio Thursday morning at a U.S. Postal Service facility in Danbury where he works as a mail carrier. Authorities also seized a computer and other components from D'Ambrosio's home in Waterbury.
D'Ambrosio, 48, appeared before a federal judge in Bridgeport Thursday and was released on bond. He has been placed under electronic monitoring.
