FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (AP) - A police officer in suburban Detroit is accused of using computer to access child pornography.

Farmington Hill Police Chief Chuck Nebus sent out a news release Sunday saying 48-year-old Matthew Parsons has been suspended without pay. He was arraigned Saturday on five counts of possession of child sexually abusive material, five counts of using a computer to commit a crime and three counts of illegally recording an individual.

He was being held Sunday in the Oakland County Jail on $300,000. Records do not indicate he has hired an attorney.

Attorney General Bill Schuette says the investigation into Parsons, a 20-year veteran with the department, started after a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about someone downloading child sexually abusive material.
