A Newbury Park man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

The Thousand Oaks Police Department and FBI arrested Verl Darvin Chaney, 52.

The investigation began in May when an undercover Thousand Oaks police detective using a publicly available file-sharing program found that Chaney was sharing illegal child pornography.

The downloaded images and videos contained actual minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, police said.

A search warrant was served at Chaney's home and he was arrested without incident. He was booked on felony child pornography into the Ventura County Jail with bail set at $50,000.
