A 51-year-old Weston man is behind bars on a $75,000 cash bond after he is accused of possessing nearly 50 images of child pornography.

Thomas Beer has previously been charged with eight counts of possessing child pornography and two misdemeanor drug charges on Dec. 12.

On Dec. 13, a search warrant was issued for Beer's computer and cell phone. Tuesday, Beer was charged with an additional 42 counts of possessing child pornography. According the Wausau Daily Herald, many of the images appeared to be of children younger than age six.

Beer will return to Dec. 27 to learn if his case will head to trial.
