Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer announced that Luis Castaneda-Contreras, 33, was at his place of employment in Middletown and then charged with Distribution of Child Pornography and Possession of Child Pornography.

The arrest and subsequent charges for Castaneda-Contreras were preceded by an investigation run after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children through the New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force identified a person in Ocean County as distributing Child Pornography over the Internet.

Detectives from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office High Tech Crime Unit then traced the images back to a residence in Brick.

The OCPO High Tech Crime Unit and Brick Police then executed a court-authorized search warrant on Castaneda-Contreras’ residence and seized multiple electronic devices that contained images of child pornography.

Castaneda-Contreras was processed at Brick Police Headquarters then transported to the Ocean County Jail where he remains pending a detention hearing.
