Parishville man accused of possessing child pornography


CHILD PORNOGRAPHY - PARISHVILLE — A town resident was charged with possessing child pornography Friday after an undercover investigation by multiple law enforcement agencies.

According to the St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department, Bradford L. Barber Jr., 40, of 3565 George St., was targeted under the child predator investigation called Operation Northern Net.

The investigation is being conducted by the department along with the Potsdam Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations.

Law enforcement used information from the investigation to gain a warrant to search his home, which was executed Oct. 23.

The arrest reportedly was based on interviews conducted and electronic evidence examined after the search.

Arrested on a federal warrant charging him with possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child on Friday, Barber was arraigned in the Northern District of New York Court, Plattsburgh, and held pending additional court appearances.
