HIGHTSTOWN - Federal agents are searching for a New Jersey man who possessed and created child pornography.

Homeland Security agents say Fredy Marcelo Arbito is accused of contacting a 14-year-old girl online, coercing her to pose naked and perform sexually explicit acts which he allegedly distributed over the Internet.

Arbito is a naturalized citizen from Equador. His last known address was a home on Morrison Avenue in Hightstown. Investigators say they raided his bedroom in January and found additional child porn on computers they seized.

Deputy Special Agent Peter Fox, of Homeland Security, says that there is information that indicates Arbito is continuing to chat with other minor children.

Police believe Arbito is still in the state. Anyone with information is urged to contact authorities.
