    Erik Soderberg, 26, of West Haven, is facing child pornography charges.

    Police have arrested a West Haven man on child pornography charges.

    The State Police Computer Crime Unit began an investigation in January after tracing child porn files being shared from a computer at 37 Nacca Road, according to police.

    On Wednesday, state police and West Haven police executed a search warrant at the home, and gathered evidence. Investigators previewed a number of the seized items and found suspected child pornography, according to police.

    Troopers arrested Erik Soderberg, 26, and charged him with first-degree possession of child pornography, promoting a minor in an obscene performance and obscenity. He was held on $100,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
