St. Petersburg man facing child porn charges

ST. PETERSBURG — A 43-year-old man is facing several criminal charges after investigators discovered he had several images of child pornography.

Law enforcement officials with the state's CyberCrime unit discovered the images during a routine investigation, according to the attorney general's office. They then traced them back to a computer belonging to Rodney Clair Gladd, of St. Petersburg, who was arrested Tuesday morning.

Authorities also seized three computers, more than 20 hard drives, multiple cameras, video tapes and CDs from Gladd's home.

He faces 15 counts of child porn possession, a second degree felony under the CyberCrimes Against Children Act. He was being held in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bail.
