VENICE, FL (WWSB) - The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office arrested a Venice man Tuesday for uploading child pornography onto the internet from his home computer.

Detectives confirmed the IP address was registered to 245 Flamingo Road and obtained a search warrant for the property. Through investigation, detectives learned that Richard Kuchta, 33, was living at the home.


Kutcha was taken into custody and charged.

He was released Tuesday evening on $1,500 bond. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending.
