A 49-year-old Riverview man was arrested Thursday night after a search warrant uncovered child pornography at his home, deputies said.

Raymond Fernandez, of 12917 Rhodine Road, faces 100 counts of possession of child porn, deputies said. He was taken to the Hillsborough County Jail with bail set at $750,000, according to jail records.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said it executed a court-authorized search about 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Fernandez’s home and seized 17 computers, eight electronic devices and several digital media equipment items.

A subsequent forensic computer preview revealed that Fernandez was in possession of images and videos depicting children about ages 1 to 17 years old in sexual activities, the sheriff’s office said.

Additional charges are pending a forensic review of the computers and electronic devices seized, the sheriff’s office said.
