By on May 25, 2018 in WNDB News

Edgewater, FL – A 52-year-old Edgewater man is behind bars for possessing child pornography.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office and Edgewater Police Department teamed up to arrest Wiliam Thorne yesterday morning at his home on Mango Tree Drive.

VCSO spokesperson Laura Williams says investigators in VCSO’s Sex Crimes Unit had been working this case since receiving a tip in January from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

“]The NCMEC] alerts law enforcement to reports of sexual exploitation of children on the Internet,” Williams added. “During their search of Thorne’s home [on April 24], detectives found pornographic images on his computer portraying girls ranging in age from 5 [to] 9.”

Thorne is facing 30 counts of child porn possession and is held on $300,000 bond at Volusia County Jail.

VCJ records show Thorne was also booked in 2010 on numerous possession charges, including for cannabis and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
