WEEHAWKEN, N.J. (AP) - State Police detectives say a northern New Jersey man had an electronic storage device that contained hundreds of images and videos depicting child pornography.

Michael Prinzo was arrested after authorities executed a search warrant last month at his Weehawken home. They were acting on a tip called in to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Authorities announced Tuesday that the 24-year-old Prinzo has been charged with possessing and distributing child porn. His bail was set at $100,000, and it’s not known if he’s retained an attorney.

While searching Prinzo’s home, detectives say they found a USB storage device hidden in a container. They say it was designed to appear like an ordinary toiletry product, but a forensic examination of the device revealed hundreds of illicit images and videos.
