ORLANDO, Fla. – FDLE agents with the Orlando Cybercrime unit today 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.
