HOLIDAY — An 85-year-old man was arrested Monday on 10 counts of possession of child pornography, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies said the investigation started last month when Myron Joseph Mall brought his computer to a repair shop on April 26. The owner then called the Sheriff’s Office to report finding what they believed could be child pornography.
Mall told deputies he had images of naked children on his computer, but that the images were not sexual, according to an arrest report.
Deputies said he signed a document agreeing to let them search his computer. Deputies said they found several images “sexual in nature,” depicting girls under the age of 18.
Mall was being held Tuesday in the Pasco County jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
