DUNEDIN — A 57-year-old man was arrested Wednesday, accused of intentionally downloading child pornography, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said.

The investigation into Richard Beal Anger of 616 Grove Court in Dunedin started in June after detectives received a tip that he was in possession of child pornography. Deputies executed a search warrant on his home on Wednesday and found "various images and videos that included sexual content and conduct by children," they said.

Anger admitted he was the only one who lived at the home, was the only one with the password and was the sole owner of all the internet devices in the home, deputies said.

He was taken into custody on 11 counts of child porn possession. He remained in the Pinellas County jail Wednesday, held on $1.1 million bail.

  5. Poorly assembled 'Lego Ninjago Movie' waters down Lego movie franchise

    Movies

    Well, that didn't take long.

    After only three movies, the Lego franchise is already a shadow of its original self, less irreverent and go-for-broke bricky. The watering down of an ingenious formula comes with The Lego Ninjago Movie, the sort we expected all along from plastic construction toys.
