St. Petersburg man accused of having more than 1,000 images of child porn

ST. PETERSBURG — More than 1,000 images of child pornography were found on a St. Petersburg man's computer Thursday morning after police executed a search warrant at his home, authorities said.

Arthur Ray Taylor, 61, was arrested at about 8 a.m. after officers carried out the warrant. He was booked in the Pinellas County Jail on 15 counts of possession of child pornography, but police said additional charges could come later.

It was not immediately clear what led police to request the warrant at Taylor's home at 6609 32nd Way S. He has no criminal record in Florida.

Address records indicate that Taylor has lived in St. Petersburg for a little more than a year and previously lived in Illinois and California.

Taylor was being held in jail on $300,000 bail.
