A supervisor for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Field Operations has been arrested on federal child pornography charges.
Prosecutors say a search warrant of 40-year-old Steven Metz of Hamburg's email revealed illicit images and videos.
Metz -- a respected anti-terrorism expert and 16-year veteran who works out of the Peace Bridge office -- was placed on administrative leave last month.
Metz made a brief appearance in Buffalo federal court yesterday. He is being held without bail.
