A 44-year-old Blackberry man has been charged with disseminating child pornography.

Ronald Duane Loberg Jr. was charged Monday in Itasca County District Court with four counts of disseminating pornographic works.

Itasca County Sheriff Pat Medure said his office was contacted by an investigator with the Wheaton, Ill., police department, who said Loberg had sent to Illinois nude pictures of children who appeared to be under age and engaged in sexual acts.

The sheriff's office executed a search warrant at Loberg's home on Friday and found numerous child pornographic images. His next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 20.
