— The Albany County Sheriff’s Office has charged a Cohoes man with possession child pornography.

Robert V. DuBuc, 26, was charged with four felony counts of possessing a sexual performance of a child and misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of a child on Friday, Sept. 20.

Police said DuBuc befriended a 15-year-old girl from Ohio on Facebook and solicited sexually explicit photos from her. He also forwarded nude photos of himself in exchange, police said. The girl’s mother found the photos and alerted the local police department, which led to sheriff’s investigators being contacted, according to police.

DuBuc was released and scheduled to appear in Cohoes City Court on Oct. 3.

The investigation is continuing and police are looking to see if there may be other victims. Anyone with information is urged to contact the sheriff’s office at 765-2352.
