FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A Wilton Manors man was arrested Tuesday after more than 20 images of child pornography were found on his computer, police said.

Sean Grealy, 27, was arrested on 10 counts of possession of child pornography and one count each of distribution or transmission of child pornography, compile or collect computer child pornography and promoting the sexual performance of a child.

Fort Lauderdale police said detectives received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that someone was using internet connections in the city to transmit child porn.

Police said search warrants for the cellphone and email accounts led them to Grealy.

A search of his phone and computer uncovered more than 20 images of pornography involving children as young as 3 years old engaged in sexual acts with men, police said.

Police said additional charges may be forthcoming pending the outcome of forensic examinations of Grealy's phone and computer.
