BRANFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A man from Branford faces a number of child pornography charges following an investigation that began in 2014.

Frank Cole, 67, was arrested on Monday, according to police.

Detective said they uncovered 1,700 images on Cole's computer after it was seized by police and later analyzed by the state police forensics laboratory.

That information was cross-referenced wit the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to determine the identity of about 50 children, many of whom were located in other countries.

“As far as we can determine, none of the photos have been connected to any children in Branford," said Det. Arthur Ferris, Branford police.

Cole was charged with possession of child pornography.

He was released on a $100,000 bond and scheduled to appear in New Haven Court on March 15.
