A Sarasota man was arrested for child pornography after a search warrant revealed numerous images on his computer.

Detectives Investigating Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) found an IP address used to download nearly 15,000 files previously identified as containing child pornography.

Detectives confirmed the IP address was coming from a home located at 4736 San Jose Dr. and got a search warrant.

The home belonged to Sean Emke, 28, and a search and forensic scan of his computer revealed at least 40 images of child pornography.

He was charged with 40 felony counts of possession: sexual performance by a child. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending.
