A 31-year-old Linwood man is under arrest, charged with endangering the welfare of children by sharing pornographic images of children via the internet.

According to Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Diane Ruberton, a 2 week investigation culminated in the arrest of Brian S. Posner, 31, of Linwood. The investigation was conducted by the "Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Computer Crimes Unit, with the assistance of the Linwood Police Department, and the United States Probation Office—Camden, NJ."
