Frederick, Md. (DG) – A Frederick County man was arrested on child pornography charges.
Maryland State Police say 35-year-old David Scalera, from Monrovia, was arrested at his home Wednesday morning.

After an extensive investigation, Scalera was identified as the suspect. Investigators say he tried several times to develop and host websites to sell child pornography.
Scalera is charged with distribution of child pornography, and possession of child pornography.
He is being held without bond at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center.
