JACKSONVILLE -- A pastor was arrested on charges he downloaded child pornography using his church's Internet connection, authorities said.

The Rev. Eric Michel Young of Fort Caroline United Methodist Church in Jacksonville was arrested Friday and charged with possessing a photo or representation that includes sexual conduct by a child younger than 18, officials said.

The arrest followed a two-week investigation by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and federal agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Secret Service.
