A Brownsville man is in custody after federal investigators say they discovered 766 images and 58 photos of child pornography on his computer.

Homeland Security Investigation agents with the Rio Grande Valley Child Exploitation Task Force arrested 25-year-old Alvaro Vega Rodriguez Tuesday after an investigation into an internet protocol address in possession of child pornography, according to a criminal complaint.

An HSI investigator says in the charging document that Rodriguez admitted to receiving and possessing child pornography.

Rodriguez made a first appearance in court Thursday, where he was ordered held without bond pending a probable cause and detention hearing scheduled for June 10, court records indicate.

Federal authorities have made several child pornography arrests in the past two weeks.
