A retired chiropractor is facing 55 counts of possession of child pornography, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said.

On Dec. 21, undercover sheriff's detectives executed a search warrant at the home of Samuel Oklesh, 67, 216 Lake Region Blvd., Winter Haven. Electronic equipment was taken away for further forensic investigation, which turned up approximately 500 images and videos of child pornography, detectives said.

An arrest warrant was obtained for Oklesh, but it was discovered that he and his live-in ex-wife, Kim Wilson, had moved away in the middle of the night several days earlier, according to the sheriff's office.

Detectives then learned of a possible residence in Indian River County, and working with Indian River Internet Crimes Against Children detectives, they arrested Oklesh,in Vero Beach. He is being held in the Indian River County Jail.
