Kevin Meier, 23, faces one count each of possession of child pornography and distribution of child pornography, said Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato and Seaside Heights police Chief Thomas Boyd.

They said Meier was arrested after officials from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children alerted New Jersey State Police that someone from Ocean County was distributing suspected child pornography, they said.

An investigation led authorities to Meier’s Sheridan Avenue home, they said.

In a search of his home on June 17, 2015, investigators found evidence of child pornography distribution, they said.

Meier, who was fired after his arrest, initially was held in the Ocean County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail, but has since been released after posting bail, authorities said.
