As part of an ongoing federal investigation, a 76-year-old Hugo man has been charged for possessing child pornography.

The investigation began in 2006 at a California company known to make and distribute child pornography through United States mail. Investigators identified Theodore William Folger as a customer.

A U.S. Postal Inspector posed as a letter carrier in 2009 and delivered a package containing child porn to Folger's home. A search warrant was later executed, and Folger was found to be in possession of "numerous examples of child pornography...including DVDs, VHS tapes and computer files."

Folger was charged Nov. 2 with one felony count of possession of child pornography. If convicted, he faces five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

His next court appearance in Washington County District Court will be Dec. 14.

A phone number for Folger could not be found Friday.
