A federal grand jury has indicted a man on child pornography charges.

The jury indicted Anthony Mileo, who is serving as a police officer in Maryland, on charges he transported child porn by computer.

According to the indictment, on May 28, 2019, the Maryland-National Capital Park Police officer was caught in a sting by Project Safe Childhood. It is unclear if he allegedly sent and received the content.
