MONTVILLE, CT (WFSB) -

A 39-year-old man who is a registered sex offender was arrested on Tuesday for possession of child pornography. 

In April 2010, investigators raided a home in Sandy Hook after police traced child pornography back to this residence.

Police seized computers from the home where graphic images were found on them. Police were able to trace the files back to Christopher Berchem, who lives in Montville.

Berchem was arrested and charged with first-degree illegal possession of child porn and promoting a minor in obscene performance.

Berchem, who is being held on $50,000, is expected to appear in Danbury Superior Court on Wednesday.
