The State Police Computer Crimes Unit arrested a Rockland man and charged him with possessing child pornography on Feb. 8.

According to Maine Department of Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland, Jarrod Bergeron, 32, was arrested at his home at 58 Acadia Drive and was taken to the Knox County Jail.

McCausland said detectives began investigating Bergeron late last year after receiving a tip. His home was searched on Dec. 15 and his computers were taken back to the computer crime unit's offices in Vassalboro to be analyzed. That exam revealed 130 sexually explicit images of 37 children under the age of 12, McCausland said.

Bergeron's court date will be March 21. Assisting in the investigation were Homeland Security and Rockland Police. Bergeron has been employed as a cook in Camden.
