CALAIS — A former Calais police officer currently working as a federal officer assigned to the Cutler Naval Facility was arrested Thursday on a child pornography charge, according to the Maine State Police.

, 49, was arrested by the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit at his Spring Street home, Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said.

The computer crimes unit was asked to investigate Wise by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service after they suspected him of viewing child pornography on his work computer, according to McCausland.

Wise also allegedly was viewing child porn on his personal computer, McCausland said. He was charged with possession of sexually explicit material of someone under age 12.

McCausland said that there is no indication any of the images depicted children from Maine.

Wise was taken to the Washington County Jail after his arrest.
