SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a 29-year-old man, charging him with 10 counts of possession of child pornography.

A total of 10 images depicting child pornography were found on Groch’s Instagram and cellphone, investigators say.

Groch was arrested Friday as the investigation continues.
