SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police have arrested a local campaign consultant for allegedly possessing child pornography.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports police arrested political consultant Enrique Pearce late Thursday (https://bit.ly/1IoavoN ).

Authorities allege a raid of his apartment found more than 600 images of children engaged in sexual acts.

Pearce had been a $5,000-a-month consultant for San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee. Lee’s aides said Friday they have now terminated that contract.

The Chronicle said Pearce is being held in lieu of $215,000 bail. A call to Pearce’s office seeking comment was not immediately returned Saturday.
