A 61-year-old Montgomery County man has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of felony possession and felony distribution of child pornography.

Robert Greene, of the 300 block of Regency Drive in North Wales, is accused of possessing 463 images and 49 videos of child pornography, and distributing some of that illicit material, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office announced Friday in a news release.

On July 8, a police detective, who is a member of the Pennsylvania Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, found a computer online that was sharing files of suspected child porn. 

The detective connected to the alleged host computer from July 8 to Aug. 26 and downloaded 14 files of suspected child porn from that computer. The files showed children under age 18 engaged in sex acts or poses and had file names that suggested underage sex acts, such as "Compilation of Boys (12yo-15yo) first time Sex with Little Girls (9yo-14yo)," the complaint says.

After tracing the computer to Greene's North Wales home and obtaining a search warrant for the home, the detective and other law-enforcement officers went to the home at about 6:20 a.m. Sept. 22.

Greene was not home, but returned to his home after being notified that authorities were there with a search warrant. He told police that "he was the person responsible for the child pornography being downloaded at his residence, and that the material would be on his Dell desktop computer in his basement office," the complaint says.

Police seized the Dell computer and other eletronic devices from the basement office. In a later interview at the local police department, Greene told authorities that "among the search terms he used when looking for child pornography was Lolita and pre-teen hardcore," the complaint says.

A forensic examination of the Dell computer's hard drive showed 463 images and 49 video files of suspected child porn, the complaint says.

Greene was arraigned Thursday on his charges and was released on $100,000 unsecured bail. He faces a Dec. 6 preliminary hearing.

Defense attorney Evan J. Kelly, who is representing Greene, declined comment Friday on the case.
