A 47-year-old Minneapolis man was charged Friday with sharing child pornography at a downtown Minneapolis coffee shop.

The man, Ivan Wayne Tencate, was arrested Thursday, said FBI Special Agent E.K. Wilson.

According to Wilson, undercover FBI agents made contact with Tencate, who was using the screen name "iten 10" and sharing child pornography using a wireless IP address associated with a coffee shop on 3rd Avenue S. in Minneapolis. Subsequent surveillance identified the user as Tencate, the FBI said.

He was charged with possessing, transporting and distributing child pornography, according to a criminal complaint filed Friday in federal court in St. Paul. He was ordered held pending a detention hearing.
