HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Hollywood police arrested one of their residents last week for uploading nearly 200 child pornography files to his Dropbox account, authorities announced on Monday.

According to an arrest report, detectives received a tip in May from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, who in turn received a cyber tip from Dropbox, Inc. about child pornography files being uploaded to an account.

The Dropbox account was under the user name Christopher Reynoso, authorities said.

Police said about 65 files of apparent child pornography had been uploaded to the account.

An IP address came back to the home of Reynoso, 23, in Hollywood, the arrest report stated.

Hollywood police and members of the South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force obtained a search warrant Nov. 7 for Reynoso's home, where he was arrested.

Detectives said more than 180 images and videos were found in Reynoso's Dropbox account of children ages 2 to 12 engaging in sexual acts with adults.

Police said Reynoso confessed to storing and viewing child pornography.

He was arrested on five counts of possession of child pornography and one count of possession of obscene computer pornography.
