SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - A 57-year-old Sarasota man was on Friday by deputies for possession of child pornography.

A search warrant was executed on Friday when detectives learned through a cyber tip that a particular IP address was used to download images of child pornography at a home at the 8700th block of South Tamiami Trail. The tip provided the name DJW, an email address of Pc.resq@gmail.com and screen/user name of XXdjwilsonXX as the person being reported.

Detectives determined through an investigation that Donald Crebo lived at the home and downloaded images of a naked 15-year-old girl through Pinterest.

In a Post Miranda statement, detectives say Crebo admitted to opening a Pinterest account using information from the tip detectives received.

Detectives say Crebo started an online group focusing on pre-teen and teen girls named “The First One" and used the group to obtain photos of nude children and other pictures detectives say Crebo described as “child erotica” and put them onto his Pinterest account.

According to the sheriff’s office, Crebo told detectives he is sexually attracted to children ages from 12 to 18, saying they are of “perfect age” because after 20 “gravity takes place and things begin to sag.”

Detectives say Crebo admitted asking the teenage girl for photos. When they spoke with her, she told detectives that Crebo offered to pay to take her to a hotel and have sex and touch her buttocks.

Crebo reportedly admitted to these allegations and detectives say he told them them he became attracted to the girl because of her “sassiness.”

When his home was searched Friday, detectives say they found child porn on a thumb drive and a small bag of meth.

Crebo was arrested and charged with three felony counts of Possession of Child Pornography, one count of Lewd or Lascivious Behavior, and one count of Possession of Methamphetamine. He remains in custody at the Sarasota County Jail on $83,000 bond while the investigation continues.
