A 21-year-old Merced man was arrested Monday morning for possession of child pornography, authorities said.

The Merced Police Department's High Tech Crimes unit and a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children said they were notified that approximately 25 files of child pornography was downloaded to a computer with an IP address coming back to Romero's home.

Ramos would not admit that a desktop computer found at his home was his, The Merced Police Department said.
