Massachusetts man arrested on child pornography charges, police say

Actor from the 1993 movie “The Sandlot” was arrested on June 2 in Horry County, South Carolina.

AUBURN, Mass. — An Auburn man has been arrested on child pornography charges, police said Friday.

Wildreen Montano, 42, was arrested Thursday afternoon and charged with possession of child pornography and distribution of child pornography, police said. He was initially held on $10,040 bail, and a judge reduced his bail to $2,000 following his arraignment in Worcester District Court.

Auburn Police detectives obtained a search warrant for Montano’s home in Auburn on Thursday. Detectives also obtained an arrest warrant for Montano.

State police assigned to the Internet Crime Against Children Task Force and Cyber Crime Unit also responded to the scene and examined digital evidence at the home. A state police K9 assisted investigators by detecting digital storage devices within the home.

Detectives do not believe that any of the children depicted in the images recovered from Montano’s home are from the Auburn community, police said.
