WAYNE - Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik held a news conference today to announce 14 people were arrested in a child pornography sting, five of whom were high school students. "Operation Minor Traffic" targeted people accused of possessing and distributing child pornography over several months.

Investigators say the defendants did not know each other. Each was arrested after they went on an Internet site that specializes in child porn and then shared those images.

Authorities say none of the abused children were from New Jersey and that all of the images were produced overseas.
