May 9, 2012 | 22:20 PDT | Long Beach, Calif. (AP) –
A police department statement says Officer Noe Yanez was arrested Wednesday and was being held on $951,000 bail.
Yanez was first arrested and booked April 19 for possession of child pornography following an investigation into alleged inappropriate contact with a minor.
Authorities say Yanez was re-arrested after Long Beach police continued their initial investigation and interviewed additional victims.
The department says Yanez has been suspended without pay since the first arrest, and will remain on suspension pending the outcome of the internal and criminal investigations.
