GARFIELD, N.J. – A retired widower from Garfield was caught with child pornography, authorities said.

Michael Yosco Jr., 70, “utilized the Internet to access, view, and possess sexually explicit files depicting prepubescent and pubescent children,” Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said.

Yosco was arrested Monday and charged with possession of child pornography following a search of his home on Friday, Grewal said.

He was released on a summons pending an Oct. 4 first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack, the prosecutor said.
