(MARTINSVILLE) - Martinsville police assisting postal inspectors have arrested two men on child pornography charges.

Sean Osborne of Martinsville and Michael Barnhorst of Greene County unwittingly corresponded with undercover investigators.

Osborne was taken into custody after he accepted a package he believed contained child pornography. He had ordered it from an undercover agent.

Barnhorst answered an advertisement on yahoo.com for a group geared toward "lovers of little girls." He added himself to the group and began corresponding with a postal inspector using an undercover e-mail address.

Osborne ordered a DVD and CD containing images of child pornography. When he signed for the package, he was taken into custody.
