The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office charged a man with multiple counts of child porn possession after they found hundreds of illegal videos.

On March 10, the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) notified the Sheriff’s Office of an incident regarding child sexual exploitation material.

Detectives with the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) unit began an investigation, and on June 2, detectives with the ICAC unit served a search warrant at a Dusk Avenue home in Kissimmee. During the search warrant, hundreds of videos depicting child sexual exploitation were located on electronic devices recovered from the home, according to a Sheriff’s Office report.

The suspect, Angel Javier Hernandez, who was cooperative with the investigation, was charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography. Hernandez was arrested and booked into the Osceola County Jail with a $25,000 bond.

“The Osceola County Sheriff's Office is dedicated to serving our community and increasing public safety,” said Maj. Jacob Ruiz in a press release.
