HAVERFORD, Pa. -

Police in Haverford Township say an investigation that began at a computer repair business led to the arrest Wednesday of a 71-year-old man accused of having more than 1,000 pornographic images on his computer hard drive.

Police say technicians at a local repair shop notified them of a hard drive they were working to repair that had images of children who appeared engaged in sexual acts.

Investigators, along with members of the FBI Philadelphia Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory, discovered the hard drive had 1,797 pornographic and seductive images considered to be child pornography.

Police say their investigation led them to Edward Jacobs of Havertown. Jacobs was arrested in connection to the images and arraigned on the charges.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
