HILLSBOROUGH — Investigators say a man used social media to talk children and get sexually explicit images of minors.

Detectives with the Somerset County Prosecutor’s office began investigating Rolando Miranda after receiving information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The Center along with police and special agents with the FBI executed a search warrant at Miranda’s home in Hillsborough.

Investigators are now examining several digital devices they collected at the home after Miranda was arrested early Monday morning. He is believed to have had several social media accounts he used to talk to children.

Miranda has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child and possession of child pornography. He is being held at the Somerset County Jail pending a detention hearing.
