A Unity man was arrested Wednesday after police seized from his apartment a tablet computer containing dozens of sexually explicit images of children under the age of 12.

Scott Tedesco. Waldo County Jail.

Scott Tedesco, 57, is charged with one count of possession of sexually explicit materials, Maine Department of Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland said in a news release.

Members of the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit and Homeland Security searched Tedesco’s apartment Wednesday morning on Albion Road.

An extensive search of the tablet’s contents will be done by analysts at the computer crime unit, McCausland said in the release.

Tedesco was arrested at his work in Pittsfield and taken to the Waldo County Jail, where he was being held in lieu of $500 bail.

If he posts bail, Tedesco is not allowed to have contact with any child under the age of 16 and is prohibited from having access to the internet.
