Clearwater man faces 50 more counts of child pornography after detectives analyze his computer

CLEARWATER — A 42-year-old restaurant cook who was charged with possessing child pornography in September now faces 50 additional charges after his computer was analyzed.

Clearwater detectives say Michael M. Miller was in possession of more than 700 images ranging from infants to teenagers. The images were discovered after detectives ran a forensics analysis on two computer towers and miscellaneous electronic storage devices, which were seized after his arrest.

Miller was arrested Sept. 15 at his home at 1935 West Skyline Drive after detectives determined he uploaded images to a social networking site, Clearwater police said.

The Clearwater Police Department Crimes Against Children and Families Unit began investigating Miller on July 31, when it received a tip Miller had posted child pornography photographs to his profile page on a social networking Web site. Police declined to identify the networking site.

Miller is being held without bail at the Pinellas County Jail.

Records from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement show Miller does not have a criminal history in Florida.

    I don't want to make light of the misery and death that Hurricane Irma inflicted on Florida this month. A lot of it was ugly, and some of it was downright criminal. We saw greed and pettiness on display, and it brought illness and death.
