A three-month long undercover sting led to the arrest of Lawrence Lemieux, 48

DUNEDIN, Fla - A three-month undercover child pornography investigation ended Tuesday with the arrest of a 48-year-old Dunedin man.

Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies say Lawrence Lemieux was arrested at his home at 801 Main Street.

Through their investigation, which began December 20, detectives say they found Lemieux was sharing child pornography video via the internet.  Deputies told ABC Action News when they served a search warrant Tuesday morning Lemieux confessed to downloading child porn on his computer.

According to Sgt. David Disano, more videos were found on Lemieux's computer showing prepubescent males engaging in sexual activity.

Lemieux also admitted to knowledge of sharing the files via the internet, deputies say.

He is now facing 10 counts of possession of child pornography and one count of distribution of child pornography.

Detectives do not believe any of the children in those videos are from the Tampa Bay area.
