ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. --  A man wanted since March for the distribution of child porn in New Jersey was nabbed by the Orangetown Police Department's Detective Unit on Thursday.

Working with the New Jersey Union County Prosecutors Office, Erik Johnson, 49, of Sparkill, was arrested by detectives on a warrant for distributing one or more images depicting the sexual exploitation or abuse of a child, according to the Orangetown Police.

Officials said that between March 6 and March 23, Johnson engaged in sexual conduct which would "impair or debauch the morals of a child," police said.

Johnson is being held without bail at the Rockland County Jail to await extradition to New Jersey.
