NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A local TV meteorologist in Connecticut has been arrested on charges of possessing child pornography.

State police say 33-year-old Justin Goldstein of WTNH-TV in New Haven was arrested Wednesday. He’s also charged with promoting a minor in an obscene performance.

The 33-year-old Goldstein is free on $200,000 bond pending a July 26 court date. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.

WTNH general manager Mark Higgins says the station is “deeply concerned by the allegations” and that Goldstein was suspended. His biography no longer appears on the station’s website.

Police say an investigation began last month after video files of suspected child porn were downloaded from Goldstein’s internet account. Federal, state and local authorities say they found child porn on computers and other devices seized at Goldstein’s home in Hamden.
