A former Newtown man has been arrested on possession of child pornography charges. Newtown Police traveled to Massachusetts Correctional Facility where they took 51-year old David Anderson into custody Friday. He was transported back to Newtown and held on bond for arraignment later that morning.
The warrant stems from an investigation that was started in November 2012, after a complaint was made to the Newtown Police Department.
The investigation crossed state lines into Massachusetts and New York. Anderson was arrested in Massachusetts and served 7 years in prison. He waived extradition to face additional charges for the crimes that took place in Newtown.
Lt. Aaron Bahamonde says Detectives did an excellent job working with other state agencies, conducting computer forensics, and putting a case together to put this predator away. He added that the community is made safer when individuals such as Anderson are identified and taken out.
