Julio Urena, 51-year-old, was arrested on Thursday, sheriff Richard Berdnik said. Urena was charged with five counts of possession and four counts of distributing of child pornography.

The Passaic County Sheriff’s Office Internet Crime Unit investigated Urena after receiving tips he was distributing child pornography. An employee of the Department of Motor Vehicle Urena possessed and also distributed images and videos of child pornography, authorities said.
