Zephyrhills man charged with 9 counts of possessing child porn

ZEPHYRHILLS — Pasco County sheriff's deputies arrested and charged a 46-year-old man with nine counts of possession of child porn after they say he sent an undercover investigator illicit materials online.

Christopher Michael Serviss, of 4649 Autumn Palm Dr., was arrested Thursday afternoon. According to an arrest report, a detective received three pornographic files depicting children from Serviss on an online file sharing service. The detective tracked Serviss' IP address to his home, got a search warrant and confiscated a Toshiba laptop.

Investigators searched it and found nine movies with titles describing sex acts with children. All of the movies showed females clearly under the age of 18 involved in sexual activity, the report said. Serviss was in the Land O' Lakes detention center on Friday with bail set at $45,000.
