Updated at 4:20 p.m. STAMFORD, Conn. — A man suspected of making bombs in his Stamford home in March was charged with possession of child pornography Wednesday, police said.

Donald Saturno, 47, was charged with first-degree illegal possession of child pornography and importing child pornography and was held on a $100,000 bond, police said. He was brought to Stamford, where he was locked up to be charged and arraigned with the new charges, Lt. Diedrich Hohn said.

In March, he was charged with illegal bomb manufacturing after police found materials that could be used to make bombs in his home during a health department inspection in January. Police seized materials and evidence during the inspection.

The child pornography images were found on his computer by investigators, Hohn said. The computer was seized with the other evidence, he said.

Police obtained an arrest warrant, and Saturno was stopped in Ridgefield, where he was placed in custody for Stamford Police.
