WAYNE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – A Clifton man was arrested for distributing child pornography, authorities said.

Pellegrino “Bill” Cirasuolo, 59, was arrested after an 8-week investigation, Passaic County Sheriff Richard H. Berdnik said.

Undercover detectives were able to acquire child pornography from Cirasuolo following a tip someone at his Clifton address was distributing it online, Berdnik said.

More than 500 files – either pictures or videos – of suspected child pornography were recovered from his computer, Berdnik said.

Cirasuolo is being held on $100,000 bail. He faces charges of possessing and distributing child pornography.

Cirasuolo, who works as a customer service agent for Continental Airlines, is being held at the Passaic County Jail.
