Farmington police arrested a man they said was sending and receiving images of child pornography.

Michael Brown, 31, of Farmington, was arrested following a joint investigation with Avon and Connecticut State Police and members of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

The investigation started in December after it was learned Brown was trading and uploading the pornographic images and videos of children ranging from 5 years old to 15 years old.

A search warrant was executed on Brown's home Feb. 25 and he was arrested.

He was charged with obscenity, possession of child pornography and promoting a minor in an obscene performance.

He's being held in jail in lieu of bond.
