SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — U.S. federal officials say a former director of a Puerto Rican municipal marching band has been arrested as part of a child pornography investigation.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents allege they searched Nelson Velez Luciano's home in U.S. island's southern city of Ponce and found pornographic images of a minor on his computer.

The former leader of the Dorado municipal band is accused of committing lascivious acts against a local girl since she was 13 years old. The alleged victim is now 17.

The 45-year-old suspect faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison if convicted. It's not clear if Velez has a lawyer.
