Man, 73, charged with 10 counts of child pornography

NEW PORT RICHEY — A 73-year-old man was arrested Thursday morning after, investigators say, he was found with several videos of child pornography.

When deputies searched Denton Lake Croft's house Thursday morning, they found 10 videos of children under 13 years old. One video depicted an infant bring sexually abused, a Pasco Sheriff's report states. Investigators say Croft had also uploaded an explicit video of a 7-year-old girl.

Croft, of 4427 Whitton Way, was arrested on charges of promoting a sexual performance by a child and possession of child pornography. He was being booked into Land O'Lakes jail Thursday afternoon.

Croft's lawyer, George Tragos, said he denies all of the allegations.
