A Florida security guard was downloading child porn while on duty, detectives say

A Venice, Florida, security guard is facing charges after detectives say he was downloading child pornography while on duty, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office.

Dennis James Pomroy, 32, was arrested Wednesday and charged with transmission of obscene material. He is being held at the Sarasota County jail on a $25,000 bond.

An undercover detective tracked an IP address that had been used to download 29 files identified as child pornography by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and traced it back to the guard house at the main gate of the Venetian Golf and River Club, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Using “employee sign-in registers” provided by Victory Security, which provides security for the community, detectives identified Pomroy as a suspect since he had been working on 10 separate occasions when child pornography was downloaded using the guard house’s IP address.

Never miss a local story.

1 year ago, Baby Kamiyah’s mystery solved, a family reunited and … – Florida Times

The early years certainly did not resemble how most people envision the benchmark moments in life.

She was born to a teen who became pregnant at the age of 15. Her father, a 22-year-old, was in jail on the day of her birth. A few months later Craig Aiken was returned to jail after police learned he was the man who impregnated an underage Shanara Mobley.

By now many people knew the name Kamiyah Mobley, the newborn abducted from a Jacksonville hospital in 1998. They worried about the infant and her young mother. They worried for the sake of future children and parents everywhere.
