A Kissimmee man was arrested and charged Tuesday with possession of child pornography.

Osceola County Sheriff’s detectives arrested Nathaniel Velez, 20, of  551 Neptune Bay Circle, and charged him with two counts of promoting photo/movie sexual performance of a child.

The investigation began in late March when detectives identified a computer with an IP address that was linked to child pornography. After further investigation, detectives discovered the computer was located at Velez’s residence in the Neptune Bay Apartment Complex.

On Tuesday, detectives obtained a search warrant for 551 Neptune Bay Circle in Kissimmee and took into evidence his computer. Velez was home and cooperated with the investigation. Based on his statements and the evidence, he was arrested and booked into the Osceola County Jail. The investigation is ongoing with additional charges pending.
