Pasco man charged with child pornography after raid

HOLIDAY — A 22-year-old man was arrested Tuesday on child pornography possession charges after a police raid at his home turned up images of young children.

Matthew Fatkin, of 5526 Golden Nugget Drive, Holiday, faces 10 counts of possession of child pornography, according to the Florida Attorney General's Office. He remained in the Pasco County jail Tuesday afternoon. County records show previous arrests on charges of possessing marijuana and violating his probation.

Acting on a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, officers with the Attorney General's CyberCrime Unit with assistance from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office and the New Port Richey Police Department seized two computers, numerous compact discs, and other electronic equipment. The evidence will undergo forensic analysis to locate any additional images. An initial review of the images discovered revealed several images of children appearing to be no more than five years old, a news release said.
