ORANGE PARK, Fla. –Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, with assistance from the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, arrested Scott Edward Stuart, 40, of 2853 Burris Road, Orange Park, Fla., on charges of possession and transmission of child pornography.
 
FDLE received a tip that a computer located at Stuart’s residence was being used to download and transmit child pornography. A search warrant was executed in October and several items of digital evidence were recovered for forensic examination.
