ST. JOHNSVILLE - A 16-year-old male was arrested Wednesday on multiple counts relating to possession and dissemination of child pornography.

The teenager - who police said was not identified due to his age - was charged with two counts of possessing sexual performance of a child less than 16 years of age, and three counts of second-degree disseminating indecent material to minors.

According to the news release, all the charges are felonies.

According to a news release from the village Police Department, the 16-year-old male from the town of Danube was arrested after a nearly month-long investigation after the department came into possession of the teenager's cell phone.

According to the release, the complaints allege on multiple occasions over the last several months the teenager sent photos of male body parts to girls as young as 12, and that he was in possession of photographs of naked girls as young as 12.

The defendant was arraigned in Canajoharie Town Court and released to a family member, pending a return to Village Court.
