An Auburn man is facing multiple charges after state police reportedly raided his home and found a stash of child pornography.

The state police's Computer Crimes Unit started investigating Matthew J. Klink's online activity at the beginning of March to see if the 25-year-old man was distributing child pornography, said Investigator Gregory Schmitter, of the Auburn-based state police.

Following the one-month investigation, Schmitter said police obtained a search warrant and — with assistance from the Auburn Police Department — combed through Klink's 48 Hamilton Ave. residence, seizing multiple computers and "related material."

Schmitter said police found child pornography, but said he could not discuss how much material was confiscated.

Klink was arrested and charged with promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child and possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child, both felonies, Schmitter said. Klink was arraigned in Auburn City Court and remanded into the custody of the Cayuga County Jail in lieu of $2,000 cash or $4,000 bond.

Schmitter said Klink has no prior criminal record.
