Largo man arrested on child porn possession charge

LARGO — A 21-year-old Largo man was arrested Monday, accused of possessing child pornography on his laptop computer.

Anthony Christopher Ellis, of 8843 92nd Terrace N, was charged with one count of possession of child pornography and was taken to Pinellas County Jail, where he is being held in lieu of $5,000 bail.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement began investigating Ellis after receiving a tip from the FBI, the FDLE said.

Ellis consented to a search of his computer and an eight-minute video file that depicts a child performing oral sex on an adult male was found during a forensic analysis by the FDLE.

Ellis knows the female teenager, whose name and age were not given, but the nature of their association was not released, the FDLE said.

According to an arrest report, Ellis admitted to saving the video file to his hard drive and being aware of the "content of the video and age of the child."
