(KMOV) -- Belleville police have arrested a man in connection with child pornography manufacturing.

Joseph Suggs, 39, of Belleville, has been charged with one count of manufacturing child pornography, two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, and one count of possession of child pornography.

Police said they were called to the 100 block of South 44th Street where they found Suggs with two male teenagers.

Suggs told police he was taking photos of the teens as part of his business.  Officers did not find any pornographic photos during the initial search of Sugg's camera, they noted in a news release sent Wednesday.

Suggs was charged with disorderly conduct for the way he approached the teens.

Authorities conducted a search of Sugg's memory cards and found hundreds of pornographic images taken in Bellevue Park and in Sugg's car. Detectives also found other items in Sugg's home, police said.

Suggs bond is set at $200,000 and he will be arraigned this afternoon.

Police continue to investigate the items found at the suspect's home.
