Port Richey man arrested on child porn charges

PORT RICHEY — A 52-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after state authorities said they found child pornography on his computer during a raid of his home.

Kevin A. Stowell, of 7214 Robstown Drive in the Embassy Hills neighborhood, is charged with 12 counts of possession of child pornography. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement worked with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office on the case, said Kristi Gordon, FDLE spokeswoman. She said a search warrant was executed at Stowell's home Tuesday morning and the pornographic images were found on his computer.

Gordon would not say more about the case, other than it is still an "active investigation."

Stowell is being held at the Pasco jail in lieu of $120,000 bail.
