Child Porn Found on Bridgewater Man's Computer, Prosecutor Says
Photos and video of children allegedly discovered following undercover investigation.
An Old York Road man was charged Wednesday with having video and image files of children engaged in sexual acts, according to Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey Soriano.
George Minkas, 46, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child in the case.
According to Soriano, Minkas was arrested following an undercover investigation by the Somerset County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The force, Soriano said, consists of detectives from the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office and the Somerset County Sheriff's Office.
In the investigation, Soriano said, detectives found that Minkas's computer had video and image files of children under 16 years of age engaging in sexual acts.
The task force executed a search warrant on Minkas's home Monday, Soriano said, with the assistance of the Bridgewater Township Police Department.
Soriano said Minkas was arrested and released on his own recognizance.
