Randall Scott Grinder was charged with one count of possession of child pornography and another count of promotion of child pornography, according to jail logs.

LARGO — A 40-year-old man accused of exchanging images of sex crimes against children younger than 12 was arrested Tuesday by Largo police.

An anonymous tip was sent to police accusing Randall Scott Grinder, who was living at the InTown Suites at 2833 Roosevelt Blvd. and has a permanent address in Bartow, Ga., of sending three pornographic pictures via text message to people he met in a chat room, said Largo Sgt. Andy Hill. Those recipients would then send back other pictures, including images of children being sexually battered.

Grinder was charged with one count of possession of child pornography and another count of promotion of child pornography, according to jail logs. Other charges of possession will be filed soon, Hill said.
