GORHAM, Maine — A local man was arrested Friday morning on a charge of possessing child pornography, state police said.

Micah Maurio, 28, was arrested without incident at his Gray Road apartment and taken to Cumberland County Jail, Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said.

Maurio, a local musician, was charged with dissemination of sexually explicit material of a person under age 12.

A review of Maurio’s computer revealed hundreds of images of child pornography, according to McCausland.

State police seized the computer, which will be further analyzed. None of the children are believed to be from Maine.

In addition to being a musician, Maurio is a part-time music instructor at the University of Southern Maine.
