NJ man facing child porn charges

A man is under arrest and facing charges of child pornography in New Jersey. Investigators say they found photos of children on his computer. The FBI conducted a raid at 71 Parkview Drive in Hillsdale Tuesday morning and arrested 66-year-old Thomas Elgert.

Elgert, who works for an engineering company, is charged with possession, production and distribution of child pornography.

A neighbor said she watched agents remove at least one computer from the house.

Elgert's family was at home at the time, but declined to comment.

Authorities say they became aware of Elgert's activities during an undercover online investigation that had been in play for two months. The FBI is investigating if Elgert actually took pictures himself or if he was directing others to do so.

Authorities are also asking anyone who believes they or their children may have been a victim of Elgert to contact police.
