A Weare man accused of possessing child sexual abuse images is being held for lack of $25,000 bail.

Michael Cisto, 54, was arrested Friday on 14 counts of the felony charge. Police said the alleged crimes date back to March.

Cisto waived his arraignment Monday morning in Goffstown’s district court. By agreement, his bail was reduced from $100,000 to $25,000, according to court records.

Weare police were assisted by the federal Department of Homeland Security Investigations and the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

A probable cause hearing is scheduled for Oct. 12 in Goffstown.
