— A Cary man is accused of downloading child pornography on his home computer.

Vagner Casarin, 44, of 401 Harlon Drive, was charged Friday with 18 counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Police found sexually explicit videos of young girls on his computer, according to an arrest warrant. The alleged offenses occurred between May 17 and June 11.

Casarin was being held in the Wake County jail under a $1.5 million bond. He is due in court Monday.

Police said they are looking into whether Casarin is in the United States illegally.
