BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport man is behind bars after police say he accidentally sent child pornography pictures to a funeral home.

Police say an employee at the Luz de Paz Funeral Home called them after he found child porn pictures on a thumb drive.

Police say Joshue Rivera gave the funeral home the drive thinking it had a picture of a deceased person on it.

Officers say they later found 153 more files of suspected child pornography on a computer at Rivera's home.
