Clearwater man arrested on child porn charges

CLEARWATER — A 28-year-old man was arrested Thursday on child pornography possession charges after detectives with a warrant searched his home, Clearwater police said.

Karl Michael Strasser was arrested at 7:20 a.m. at 512 S Crest Ave., and charged with 20 counts of possession of child porn and one count of distributing child porn.

Police would not say how Strasser became a focus of the investigation, which began in August.

Thursday, Clearwater police, along with the attorney general's Cybercrime Unit, found images of child pornography on three computer towers and storage devices, which were seized.

Strasser was also charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia after detectives found 1.3 grams of marijuana in his bedroom, police said.
