OLDSMAR — A 27-year-old man was arrested at his home Thursday on five counts of possessing child pornography.

Ardid was arrested at 9 a.m. by a Clearwater police detective who works with the state's Child Predator CyberCrime Unit.

He was taken to the Pinellas County Jail, where he was being held without bail for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
