MAGNOLIA, N.J. (AP) — An 80-year-old New Jersey crossing guard and school board member has been arrested on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography.

The Camden County prosecutor's office says Rudolph Kube was charged Thursday after detectives executed a search warrant at his Magnolia home. Authorities say they found hard drives containing child porn pictures and videos.

Prosecutors say the investigation began after detectives monitoring a peer-to-peer file-sharing program noticed child porn videos were being downloaded from an IP address associated with Kube's home.

Kube is a crossing guard for Magnolia Public School and a member of the Magnolia School District Board of Education.

His bail has been set at $100,000.

Someone at his home has answered and immediately hung up the phone. It's unclear if he has an attorney who can comment for him.
