PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — An undercover investigation led to the arrest of a Pawtucket man on child pornography charges.

Hector Mendoza, 30, of Beecher Street, was arrested by Rhode Island State Police at his apartment Thursday morning.

Mendoza is accused of trading images and videos of child pornography online.

Members of the Rhode Island Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force executed a court-authorized search warrant at his home and found a cell phone owned by Mendoza that contained images and video of child porn.

Mendoza was arraigned Thursday on charges of possession of child pornography and transfer of child pornography.
