NORTH WALES (WTXF) - A North Wales man has been arrested on child pornography charges.
According to a press release, between July 8, 2016 and August 26, 2016 Abington Township Detective Richard Beaghley conducted an undercover, electronic communications operation online regarding a computer that was specifically configured to anonymously share files with others.

Greene has been charged with distribution of child pornography, possession of child pornography, and criminal use of a communication facility.
He was arraigned and then released on $100,000 unsecured bail.
