EAST HARTFORD, CT (AP) -

An East Hartford man was arrested on Thursday after police said he asked a young girl to send him nude pictures of herself.

Michael Siggia, 40, was charged with third-degree possession of child pornography, importing child pornography, use of a computer to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity, and risk of injury.

A warrant was issued for his arrest after investigators with the CT Center for Digital Investigations learned that Siggia was having “inappropriate sexual conversations” with an underage girl in Illinois.

East Hartford officials were alerted of the relationship by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office in Illinois.

Numerous computers and electrical devices were seized from his home.

He is currently being held on $375,000 bond.
