SOUTHBURY, Conn. (AP) - State police say a Danbury man has been arrested after troopers found child pornography on his two cell phones.

Authorities say Edward Barker turned himself in Friday at the Southbury state police baracks. He was charged with child pornography possession and detained on $40,000 bail pending arraignment in Danbury Superior Court.

State police say the investigation began six months ago when they received a complaint about suspected child pornography being saved to a cloud storage device. Authorities say they seized Barker’s cell phones in July.

It wasn’t immediately clear what Barker’s response to the allegations is, or who his lawyer is.

His mother, Carlene Barker, said she and her husband were surprised by the arrest. She said police told her someone overseas sent her son images of children having sex.
