EASTPORT, Maine — A Washington County man was arrested over the weekend after child pornography was found on his computer, according to police.

Rubin Perry, 25, is facing a charge of possession of sexually explicit material of children under age 12, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said Tuesday in a news release.

McCausland said members of the State Police Computer Crimes Unit received a tip that Perry had child porn and went to his apartment Sunday morning.

Perry was arrested and taken to the Washington County Jail, where he remained Tuesday, according to a jail official. McCausland said additional charges are likely after Perry’s computer is analyzed.
