    A Woonsocket, Rhode Island, man has been arrested after police traced pornographic images of children found on an online storage site to a computer in his apartment.

    Colonel Steven O'Donnell with the Rhode Island State Police says 34-year-old Jeremy Gagnon was arrested Wednesday and charged with of possession of child pornography.

    A phone number listed for Gagnon was no longer in service Thursday and he could not be reached for comment. He is free after posting a $2,000 bond under the conditions that he stay off the Internet and have no contact with children.

    The Woonsocket Call reports the images on a Microsoft Skydrive account were brought to the attention of police by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

    Police say they found other digital images after searching Gagnon's apartment.
