JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- Local law enforcement officers partnered with a state task force to track down a man they say repeatedly downloaded images of child porn.

Wednesday, Jacksonville Beach police announced the arrest of Thomas Bryant, 70. Investigators say his computer had more than 700 pictures and movies of children involved in sex acts. They believe he was sharing them on the Internet.

The North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force began the investigation on June 28, 2013, according to the release. More information was gathered from the Office of Homeland Security Investigation.

Bryant is charged with 12 counts of possession of child pornography. Eleven of those have been reclassified as second-degree felonies because of the explicit content, according to the report.
