OZONE PARK — An off-duty police officer was arrested Monday within the 106th Precinct, which covers Ozone Park, South Ozone Park and Howard Beach, after authorities said they found five videos containing pornographic images of underage girls on his computer, according to a criminal complaint filed by the Queens district attorney’s office and the NYPD.
Yong-Fa Wu, 34, was arrested and charged with promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing a sexual performance by a child, according to the court document.
The Police Department confirmed that Wu worked for the NYPD.
The law firm representing Wu did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The complaint said a special agent was monitoring the sharing of child porn on peer-to-peer networks and noticed that an IP address registered to Wu was sharing at least 60 files of interest.
The agent then viewed five pornographic videos on Wu’s computer that contained images of girls between the ages of 8 and 12, according to the complaint.
