The owner of a well-known North Jersey construction firm is now sitting in jail after investigators said they found him trafficking in kiddie porn.

Paul Benson, owner of the Alpine Group, was arrested at his Woodcliff Lake home and charged with distributing child porn.

“In this case, the child pornography contained images and/or videos of pre-pubescent children engaged in sexual acts,” said Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli.

Molinelli said his investigators worked closely with their counterparts from the Suffolk County Police Department on Long Island.

The prosecutor also cited several local departments that have provided officers to work with his Computer Crimes unit to track down cyberpredators and other criminals: Park Ridge, Ramsey, Ridgewood, Upper Saddle River, and, of course, Woodcliff Lake.

Benson, who is 42 and married, is being held on $100,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, pending a court appearance in Hackensack tomorrow morning.
