Rhode Island State Police and members of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force have arrested a Warwick man on a charge of possessing child pornography.

Warwick police received a complaint from a social worker that had contact with Vongkaysone, who then forwarded the matter to the state police.

Authorities found images of child pornography on a laptop belonging to Vongkaysone.

He is expected to be arraigned Wednesday at Third Division District Court in Warwick.

If convicted, he'll face a fine of up to $5,000, up to five years in prison, or both.
