A 59-year-old man was arrested by the Belleville Police Department after being in possession of child pornography Friday.

In a Facebook post, the Belleville Police Department said no additional information about the victim will be released due to the sensitive nature of the case.

Authorities said there are no other known victims at this time.

Rice was charged with two counts of unlawful possession of child pornography and is held on a $ 75,000 bond.

The investigation is ongoing.
