PARISHVILLE -- A Parishville man was charged with possession of child porn Friday.

Bradford L. Barber, Jr., 40, was arrested on a federal warrant for possessing an obscene sexual performance of a child, according to the St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office.

A search warrant was executed at Barber’s residence Oct. 23, deputies said.

The investigation included interviews and electronic evidence examined by a forensics lab, deputies said.

Barber was arraigned in the Northern District of New York in Plattsburgh and was held pending further court proceedings, deputies said.
