Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Friday arrested Adrian Michael Brush, 46, of Apalachicola on 12 counts of possession of child pornography.

The investigation began after FDLE received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that a device from Brush’s residence was used to access and view files depicting children under age 18 engaged in sexual conduct.

In a news release Tuesday, FDLE said its investigation shows the device belonged to Brush and contained images of pornography involving children who appear to be under age 5.

Brush was booked into the Franklin County Jail, and given a $12,000 bond, $1,000 for each of the 12 counts. Each one is a third-degree felony, punishable by up to five years in prison.

The Office of the State Attorney, 2nd Judicial Circuit will prosecute this case.
