A Ticonderoga man remains jailed after allegedly being found in possession of child pornography.

Ticonderoga Town Police, acting on a tip, began investigating Arthur Ellis Jr. in late February after learning he was reportedly in possession of several illegal and obscene images.

During a subsequent search of his Montcalm Street residence, police said, they located several DVDs containing child pornography.

Ellis, 62, was arrested Monday on charges of promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child.

He was arraigned in Ticonderoga Town Court before Justice Keith Dolbeck and subsequently sent to Essex County Jail without bail.

Police said Ellis is due back in court at 10 a.m. Thursday.

The investigation continues.
