GEORGETOWN, Texas (KWTX) Charles Andrew Adler, 66, of Leander, remained in the Williamson County Jail Friday charged with five counts of possession of child pornography.

Adler was arrested Thursday after an investigation by the Child Exploitation Unit of the Texas Attorney General’s Office that was launched in response to a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children involving the uploading of images of child pornography to an email account, authorities said in a press release Friday.

“While executing a search warrant at Adler’s home, investigators found numerous images of child pornography on his cell phone,” authorities said.

“During an interview, Adler confessed to uploading and storing files of child pornography on his cell phone. Investigators seized items for examination by the Digital Forensics Unit of the attorney general’s office.”

Bond had not been set as of late Friday morning.
