A San Francisco man employed by the federal Department of Homeland Security was arrested and charged with two felonies for possessing and distributing child pornography, police said.

Gilbert Lam, 37, was arrested at his San Francisco home on March 9 and has since been charged in San Francisco Superior Court. He is in custody in San Francisco County Jail. Bail has been set at $250,000.

Lam's arrest came after San Jose cops raided his home in 2011. The San Jose-based Internet crimes task force, which is set up to bust Internet users who dabble in kiddie porn, found 80 videos of child pornography after a forensic search was performed on “computers, hard drives, and electronic media” located in his bedroom, according to authorities.
