— A Cary man was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in federal prison for possessing thousands of sexually explicit images of children, authorities said.

Andrew Stephen Lazetera, 28, of 24301 Havers Drive, pleaded guilty in June to receipt of child pornography.

Cary investigators received a cyber-tip through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children last October, and an IP address that was using a peer-to-peer file-sharing network to send and receive pornographic material was traced to Lazetera's home, authorities said.

During a search of his computer and other electronics, investigators found about 3,400 pornographic images, authorities said.
