NAPLES — Collier County sheriff’s deputies arrested a man Monday they said posted child pornography to the social networking site Instagram.

According to investigators, 18-year-old Sean Michael Rodriguez uploaded 20 pictures of boys age 6 to 12 engaging in sex acts alone or with each other.

Instagram alerted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which contacted the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.

According to a report, deputies obtained a search warrant for Rodriguez’s home and found 130 images of child porn on electronic devices.

Rodriguez faces 130 counts of possession of child porn. He was being held in the Collier County Jail with bail set at $650,000, according to jail records.

It was unclear whether he had an attorney.
