Irondequoit, N.Y. (WHAM) - An Irondequoit man was arrested on child pornography charges after a joint investigation by the Irondequoit Police and the FBI.

Irondequoit Police said there could be more victims in this case, as well.

Brandon Blessing, 20, was arrested Saturday after a long-term investigation for images of child pornography found a computer. Images of children as young as two years old were found on the computer, according to court paperwork.

Blessing was charged with possessing a sexual performance by a child and was remanded to the Monroe County Jail in lieu of $6,000 cash bail or bond. He is scheduled to return to court on March 9.

Police said Blessing's arrest stemmed from an initial investigation linked to accusations that he had been contacting younger teens and asking for sexually explicit images.

Irondequoit Police say there could be more victims who have not yet reported being victimized. If you or anyone you know has information about Blessing or believes they may have been a victim, they should contact the Irondequoit Police Department and ask for Investigative Supervisor Sgt.
