A borough man was charged Friday with possessing child pornography on his home computer as well as endangering the welfare of children.
Joseph Michael Graber III, 39, was arrested Friday morning after officers raided his Blackfoot Trail home and found sexually explicit photographs and videos of children on a computer hard drive, police said. Equipment that included a desktop and laptop computer and unspecified media related to the case was seized.
Graber also is suspected of distributing an explicit photo to a person he believed to be a juvenile girl. Police did not specify what the photo showed or depicted or identify the person who sent the image.
Graber was charged with endangering the welfare of children, possessing child pornography and promoting obscene material. He was sent to Burlington County Jail in Mount Holly in lieu of $102,500 bail.
The case was investigated by Sgt. Darren Dogostino with assistance from the New Jersey State Police's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
