NEW HAVEN — An administrative officer with the Federal Aviation Administration has been charged with having child pornography on his work computer.

Prosecutors say 57-year-old Scott Pierson of Vernon was arrested Thursday on federal charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.

Prosecutors say the Department of Transportation’s Office of Inspector General learned in March that Pierson had accessed websites known to contain child porn.

Investigators seized several computers, cellphones and thumb drives this week during a search of Pierson’s home. Prosecutors say Pierson had hundreds of images and videos of children on his FAA-issued laptop and other devices.

Pierson is assigned to the FAA’s Bradley Flight Standards District Office in Enfield. Nobody answered a phone call seeking comment Friday made to a number listed for Pierson.
