Zephyrhills man accused of possessing, transmitting child pornography

ZEPHYRHILLS — An 18-year-old man was arrested and charged with possession and transmission of child pornography after an Internet cloud storage service reported him to authorities.

Ashten Kayne Henderson, of Second Avenue, was arrested on Thursday. According to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report, Dropbox.com contacted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about two uploaded movies believed to be child porn.

The Sheriff's Office subpoenaed Verizon for the origin of the downloads and found Henderson's mother's address. They went to the house and found a total of 10 movies. Henderson, a student at Pasco-Hernando State College, admitted to downloading the files after his arrest, the report said.

He remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Friday in lieu of $60,000 bail.
