The investigation leading to the arrest of 47-year-old Gerrett Conover of Woolwich Township began in April in Boston. Federal prosecutors say evidence showed Conover engaged in sexually explicit chats and traded child pornography with a Massachusetts man.

Officials say they arrested Conover when he entered the United States from Canada earlier this month.

Prosecutors say they found more than 50 child pornography images on his computer. They also say there as an online chat in which Conover claimed he had a long-term relationship with a boy when he was a Boy Scout leader from 1990 to 2000.

Conover is scheduled to make an initial court appearance in Camden on Friday.
