PORT RICHEY — A 63-year-old man was arrested Thursday after, deputies say, he had photos of naked underage girls on his digital camera.

Francis Aloysius Pfeffer is accused of inviting at least one girl over to his home, giving her alcohol, performing sex acts on her and taking the photos, according to a Pasco Sheriff's Office report.

Detectives received a tip online about Pfeffer and began investigating. They found the pink Samsung camera in Pfeffer's living room at 8911 Eileen Drive. One of the victims identified herself in the photos, the report states.

Questioned by detectives, Pfeffer said he knew the girl and believes her to be in her "late teens," the report states. He said he took "silly pictures" of young females who came to his house.

Pfeffer was arrested on charges of unlawful sexual activity with a minor, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, promoting sexual performance by a child and possession of sexual performance by a child. He remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Thursday afternoon.
