A Maryland man was arrested Friday after authorities found child pornography files on his cellphone, Maryland State Police said.

Ronald Williams II, 37, of Suitland faces 11 counts of possession and distribution of child pornography, officials said.

Police said its task force on Internet crimes against children received a tip of a possible distribution of child pornography from a certain Internet address. The tip came from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, police said.
