Fairfield Police arrested a 34-year-old man for possession and distribution of child pornography Tuesday.

Police started investigating Jeremy Marney several months ago after learning that he may be uploading and sharing child pornography.

Detectives searched Marney's home Tuesday morning and took several electronic items, some of which held large quantities of explicit pictures of children.

According to Fairfield Police, child pornography has become a multi-billion dollar crime industry and one of the fastest growing crimes in the nation.

Marney has been charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.
