(CBS) - New York State Police say they arrested an NYPD auxiliary cop after finding child pornography in his upstate home.

According to the New York Daily News, officers said Daniel Sayer, 59, was charged with two felony counts of possessing child pornography. He's being held in Orange County Jail on $15,000 cash bond.

Police say they discovered photos of boys under 16-years-old engaging in sexual acts, after a January raid on a vacant rental home in Blooming Grove, about 60 miles north of New York City, reports the Daily News. They later discovered Sayer had been staying there.

According to the Daily News, state police say they found additional graphic images on Feb. 1 in Sayer's Greenwood Lake residence.

After his arrest, Sayer was dismissed from his volunteer position as a Deputy Inspector of the auxiliary unit at the Upper West Side's 20th Precinct, the NYPD reportedly said.

Authorities say Sayer coached young children from 1972 to 1998 at "Dan's Cougars Children's Sports Club," which he owned and operated, the Daily News reports.
