    A former Philadelphia police officer was arrested Tuesday on dozens of charges of child-pornography in Delaware County.

    Seventy-year-old Leo Haley, of Lauriston Street in Roxborough, was part of a four-man child-porn bust by the Delaware County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

    According to authorities, Haley -- a retired police officer who worked on the force for 30 years -- admitted to downloading, viewing and sharing child pornography through Limewire file-sharing network, reports the Daily News.

    Police charged Haley with 50 counts of possession of child porn and six counts of disseminating pornographic images of children.

    Haley’s arrest was among the 10 warrants executed Tuesday with the help of city and state police.

    Haley was released on bail Tuesday.
