Monrovia Md. -

Police said they arrested a Frederick County man Wednesday on charges for child pornography and trying to create host websites to sell it.

Maryland State Police said they identified 35-year-old Joshua Scalera as a suspect as part of an investigation that began after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children gave them a tip in 2016 about someone uploading child pornography to a website. Through their investigation, police said they discovered Scalera tried to create the websites to sell pornography "on several different occasions."

According to police, they continued to receive information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and their investigation led them to get a search warrant for Scalera's Monrovia home. Maryland State Police, Homeland Security and Frederick Police all searched the home Wednesday, where authorities said they found multiple child pornography files.

Scalera has been charged with three counts of distribution of child pornography and six counts of possession of child pornography. He is being held without bond.
