PARK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A Park Township man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly downloading child porn using a nursing home’s Wi-Fi.

Authorities said the 54-year-old man is expected to be arraigned on charges related to possession and distribution of child sexual explicit material.

The Internet Crime Task Force found an IP address was downloading child porn materials several times from public locations at similar times and patterns. Investigators then set up a surveillance camera and arrested the man.

Authorities said the man wasn’t a resident at the nursing home, but visited multiple times and used the public internet access.

He is facing charges of possession and distribution of child sexual explicit material.
