Richard Woodhead, 54, was taken into custody Thursday morning after authorities executed a federal search warrant at his home on Kerry Drive.

Woodhead is accused of attempting to engage in sex with a minor, possessing child pornography and receiving child pornography.

Prosecutors say investigators found the pornography stashed in a secret compartment in Woodhead’s bedroom closet. Police also found a bottle of “jungle juice,” which prosecutors say can be used as an inhalant.

Woodhead’s lawyer says he has been a police officer for 32 years, married for 28 years and an Attleboro resident for 19 years.

Woodhead will be held behind bars until a bail hearing, which is scheduled for next week.
