SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York man has been arrested on child pornography charges.

The Syracuse Post-Standard reports Saturday (https://bit.ly/1nF4pc9 ) that Michael Caraher was arrested by FBI agents Thursday.

Court documents obtained by the newspaper show FBI agents seized thousands of photos and videos in a desktop computer and other devises.

An FBI agent swears in an affidavit that the 26-year-old Caraher told authorities he started downloading such images from the Internet when he was just 15.

The paper says a judge held him in jail until a detention hearing on Tuesday.
