A Kissimmee man was recently arrested by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for possession of child pornography.
FDLE agents with the Orlando Cybercrime arrested Christopher Blankenship, 32, of 2251 Siesta Lane, Kissimmee, on 10 charges of possession of child pornography.
Agents received a tip in October about digital files of known or suspected child pornography being advertised on the Internet. The investigation determined the files were advertised by Blankenship and a search warrant was obtained. During an on-scene digital examination, agents found evidence of child pornography. The devices were seized for further analysis.
Blankenship was taken to the Osceola County Jail on a $50,000 bond status. The State Attorney’s Office, 9th Judicial Circuit, will prosecute.
