Authorities arrested a 61-year-old New Jersey music teacher for allegedly downloading and sharing child porn from his home computer.

Police arrested Ronald Scott, who works in the Elizabeth school district, Friday after finding pornographic videos and images of children while executing a search warrant at his home. 

The arrest follows a five-month investigation by the New Jersey State Police Digital Technology Investigations Unit and the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. 

Scott was charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. He's being held on $50,000 bail and was forbidden to have contact with anyone younger than 18.

Information on an attorney for Scott wasn't immediately available. 

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call (609) 584-5051 ext. 5624.
