YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A 69-year-old Lodi retiree was arrested this morning on charges of downloading kiddie porn and released on a summons pending a court hearing.

Jose L. Vega was charged with child endangerment by possessing images of child exploitation after detectives executed a search warrant ast his Wisse Street apartment, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said.

An investigation by his Computer Crimes Unit found that Vega “was using the Internet to acquire images of child pornography,” the prosecutor said. “During the search of his residence, additional images of child exploitation were discovered on an electronic device belonging to him.”

Vega, who is single, is due for a first appearance in Central Municipal Court in Hackensack on Thursday.

Molinelli thanked Lyndhurst, Upper Saddle River and Glen Rock police, “who provided additional support in the form of Computer Crimes Task Force personnel,” Molinelli said.
