SPRING HILL — A 59-year-old Spring Hill man was arrested Thursday and charged with three counts of possession of child pornography, authorities said.

Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested Joseph Costa, 59, of 14111 Newcastle Ave., after finding images of child pornography in his possession, according to an FDLE media release.

Several computers were seized and will be searched to determine if additional charges will be filed, the FDLE said.

Costa was booked in Hillsborough County without incident.

No other details were released.
