NEW PORT RICHEY — A New Port Richey man was arrested Thursday at his home and accused of possessing child pornography, according to the Pasco Sheriff’s Office.
Michael Paul Daly, 61, 7627 Cumber Drive, is charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography.
Deputies and members of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement used a search warrant about 7 a.m. to enter Daly’s home. Once inside, authorities found multiple computer hard drives that contained hundreds of images of child pornography, according to the sheriff’s office.
Children in the videos and photos recovered at Daly’s home ranged in age from infant to under 13, deputies said.
“Make no mistake about it, what this individual was into is absolutely sick, disgusting,” Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco said.
