A member of the Vermont Air National Guard was arrested Friday morning near his home in Essex on charges of transporting and possessing child pornography.

Maj. Scott Brochu, 47, was indicted after an investigation during the week of May 13th, lead by the Department of Homeland Security.

The Vermont National Guard confirmed the arrest and sent a statement, saying quote:

“The Vermont National Guard will support the investigating officials as they require.  We hold our service members to a high standard. Any action by our service members that violates the law, breaks the trust that citizens place on our organization and will not be tolerated.”
