An Academy Gardens man has been arrested for allegedly using the Internet to share sexually graphic images of children.

According to a criminal complaint, agents were investigating online child pornography when they found numerous files containing depictions of children under age 18 engaged in sexually graphic acts and poses. The agents identified Toro as the individual “sharing” those photos, authorities said. Agents arrested him on June 11. A search of Toro’s residence resulted in the confiscation of a laptop computer, which will be analyzed forensically.

Toro was freed on June 12 after posting 10 percent of $25,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 27. ••
