A Monroe man is facing charges after reportedly sharing child pornography on the Internet, according to police.

Anthony Bocchino, 31, of 81 Partridge Drive in Monroe was arrested Tuesday after authorities searched his home and found that he had been sharing pornographic images online, according to police.

The search was part of an investigation launched in March after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received copies of the images. Police said five of the files were confirmed to be explicit photos of children under the age of 16.

Bocchino was arrested and charged with first-degree possession of child pornography, importing child pornography and promoting a minor in an obscene performance.

He was held on $100,000 bond and is due in court July 2.
