Ormond Beach, FL – A 37-year-old Ormond Beach man arrested earlier this month for plotting to rape a 3-year-old girl now faces more charges.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office announced those charges yesterday (February 22nd) against Lafe Best, saying he had at least 11 photos of young girls in sexual situations on his smartphone when he was taken into custody February 5th.

Investigators searched the LG android phone – which was in Best’s possession at the time of his arrest – within hours after getting a judge to electronically sign a search warrant, according to his arrest report.

Almost all the images featured girls between the ages of 3 and 9, with at least three of them performing a sex act on a man, per the report.

Because of the nature of the images, the felony charges Best now faces have been upgraded from third degree to second.

Best remains at Volusia County Jail under no bond.
