SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A Navy man was arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography, authorities said Tuesday.

Joseph Valencia Gonzales II, 36, was taken into custody at Naval Base Coronado Monday afternoon, according to the FBI.

At the time of his arrest, the San Diego resident was allegedly sitting in his truck outside a fast food restaurant on the base, using the business's wireless Internet service to view and download child pornography via a laptop computer that contained at least 45 sexually explicit photos and
