A Jefferson man was arrested Tuesday morning on a charge of possessing sexually explicit material.

Vincent Maltese, 51, was taken to Two Bridges Jail in Wiscasset, where he posted bail and then was freed, according to a news release from Maine State Police spokesman Stephen McCausland.

Maltese’s next court date is April 27 in Lincoln County.

According to McCausland, investigators with the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit, acting on a tip, reviewed Maltese’s computer and electronic devices at his home and reported finding “hundreds of images of child porn.” McCausland said the equipment was seized and taken for further analysis at the Computer Crimes Unit’s laboratory in Vassalboro.
