A Litchfield man is facing child pornography charges following an eight-month investigation by a statewide task force focused on crimes against children.

Police from Litchfield, Bedford, Hampton and the Department of Homeland Security arrested Michael Demarco, 35, of 16B Colby Road, on July 22 after searching his home, according to police.

Litchfield Police Chief Joseph O’Brion said police seized computers from the home and charged Demarco with one count of possession of child pornography.

The officers are members of the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force based at the Portsmouth Police Department.
