HAMDEN ó A Centerville man accused of e-mailing a pornographic picture of a young girl allegedly admitted to having more than 100 sexual images of children on his computer, police said.
Philip Bacon, 53, of 65 Sanford St., faces one count of possession of child pornography. He is free in lieu of $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court May 23.
Phone calls to Baconís home were not returned Friday.
Neighbors and family members also could not be reached for comment.
Deputy Police Chief Jack Kennelly said Bacon told detectives about the additional child pornography on his hard drive shortly after police searched his home and seized three of his computers. "Itís a despicable crime," Kennelly said. "The department will make every effort to eliminate this type of activity within our town limits." Police said Bacon is divorced and has twin 18-year-old children.
