MIDDLE TOWNSHIP — A 44-year-old township man has been charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.

Robert Phillips is being held on $50,000 bail at Cape May County Jail after police searched his mobile home June 5 at the Presidential Trailer Park in the Mayville section of Middle Township.

Police said evidence was seized from the trailer home, but did not specifically say what was taken. They did say the evidence led to the issuing of a search warrant.

The investigation of Phillips was begun after police received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
