Largest-Ever Cache of Child Porn in New Jersey Found on Man's Computers: Officials

Charles Diggs, arrested Sept. 3, allegedly had more than 325,000 pornographic images and videos

A New Jersey man allegedly had more than 325,000 images and videos of child pornography on his computer equipment, the largest cache ever found by state investigators, authorities say. 

Charles Diggs was arrested Sept. 3 after authorities executed a search warrant at his Roselle home. The investigation began after Hunterdon County prosecutors got a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about a Twitter account that allegedly was uploading child porn. 

Authorities say the account was traced to the 36-year-old Diggs and investigators identified 12 images of child porn that he allegedly distributed. They seized five computers and numerous hard drives. 

A state grand jury recently indicted Diggs on charges of distributing and possessing child porn. Information on an attorney for him wasn't immediately available.
