A 27-year-old Maine man has been charged with possessing child pornography.
Peter J. Blanchette of Buxton lives with his mother, who operates a day care center at their home.
Investigators say there is no indication that the mother, Alma York, knew of her son's activities or had any involvement.
The County Corner Kids Daycare is located in the living quarters of their home at 455 Long Plains Rd. The day care center is licensed for nine children. Some of the children were present when investigators arrived at the home late Monday morning.
Authorities began their investigation after receiving a tip of Blanchette's activities. That tip did not indicate any involvement with the children at the day care center.
Blanchette has been released on unsecured bail. He is due in Alfred County Superior Court on Aug. 7.
