A police officer is facing charges after prosecutors say he had child pornography.

Yong-Fa Wu was arrested and arraigned Monday.

Prosecutors say he was caught on April 1 sharing at least 60 pornographic files over a peer-to-peer network.

Investigators say they looked at his computer and found videos of girls as young as 12 having sex with adults.

The 34-year-old is charged with seven counts of promoting a sexual performance of a minor and seven counts of possession.

Neighbors said they're shocked.

"That's true. I see him around gardening, taking care of his house, taking the garbage out. Sometimes I see him, I say hell, but he's so quiet," said one neighbor. "Nobody knows what people are doing behind closed doors."

Bail was set at $50,000.

Wu is due back in court on May 15.

There is no word if he's been reassigned or suspended from the force.

His attorney declined comment.
