BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) – A Nantucket man who was arrested on child pornography charges after leaving a digital camera in a Cape Cod hotel room has been ordered held on $25,000 bail.

Barnstable police say a hotel employee who found the camera called police after seeing images of an adult male engaged in sex with young girls.

As a result, officers were waiting for 53-year-old William Constable when he returned to the hotel Friday to retrieve his camera.

He pleaded not guilty during his arraignment in Barnstable District Court.

Police later searched Constable’s Nantucket home after his arrest and found computer discs and videocassettes believed to contain images of child pornography.

Investigators say Constable is suspected of having traveled to Southeast Asia several times in recent years and allegedly videotaped himself having sex with adolescent girls.
