(Harrisburg) -- A midstate middle school teacher has been arrested on child pornography charges.

Among the charges facing 29-year-old Craig Cohen of East Pennboro Township, Cumblerand County, are four counts of dissemination of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

State Attorney General Kathleen Kane says the arrest is part of her office's ongoing effort to target the online sharing, downloading and distribution of child pornography.

According to the criminal complaint, agents found numerous files containing images of minors engaged in sexually graphic acts and poses.

They say the files were being made publicly available for download from a computer allegedly belonging to Cohen.

Cohen is listed as science teacher at East Pennsboro Middle School.
