    (Published Sunday, June 10, 2018)

    A Worcester man is being investigated on child pornography charges.

    Police found a homemade, child-like love doll and several pairs of children's underwear inside the home of James M. Stoddard.

    He will appear in U.S. District Court in Worcester on Monday to face a federal child pornography possession charge.

    The probe into Stoddard began in February when the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a tip from Google about child pornography being uploaded in Worcester.

    Massachusetts State Police found 46 images of child pornography on computers seized during a search. Stoddard is listed as a Level 1 registered sex offender after being conflicted for possessing sexually explicit material of a minor in Maine.

    An attorney for Stoddard could not be immediately identified.
