SARASOTA, Fla. — A Sarasota man was arrested after police said he's facing 40 counts of child pornography.
On March 20, detectives with the Sarasota Police Department executed a search warrant at 446 Shade Circle for child porn. The search warrant was based off a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
The tips go back to 2018 when James Sutton-Baines, 31, was living in Illinois.
A local tip launched an investigation in March 2019.
Sarasota police found more than 40 images on Sutton-Baine's cell phone and detectives confirmed the images were child porn.
Detectives believe the local crimes were committed between August 2019 - January 2020.
Sutton-Baines was transported to the Sarasota County Jail and is being held on a $40,000 bond.
Detectives do not currently believe any of the children in the images were local children.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call (941) 263-6067.
