A New Port Richey man was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with possessing child pornography, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

Duane Carl Sabo, 65, of 4949 Hazner St., is charged with 10 counts of possessing photography of sexual performance by a child and an additional count of possession of a movie containing sexual performances by a child.

A tip was received from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children indicating that, on Nov. 26 just before midnight, someone using a Juno.com email account sent a zip file containing 97 images of children having sex.

A subpoena was sent to Verizon to obtain the customer's name and address. The information led to Sabo's home. Deputies used a search warrant to search Sabo's laptop and found a file containing the images.

Sabo, according to the arrest report, later confessed to having and sending child pornography by email.

The children depicted were ages 6 to 14, according to deputies.

Sabo remains in the Land O' Lakes Jail. Bail was set at $170,000.
