Fort Lauderdale Man Accused of Using Many Internet Connections to Transmit Child Porn
Fort Lauderdale police arrested a man they say has been using numerous internet connections throughout the city to transmit images of child pornography.
On Wednesday, the department charged the 47-year-old man with promoting sexual performance by a child, transmission of pornography by an electronic device, and computer pornography.
Detectives worked with the South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force to make the arrest at the man’s Fort Lauderdale home. Deputies had received tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about Lumsden.
Several electronic devices were seized from his home and have been analyzed.
The investigation is apparently ongoing.
