BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Agents with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Sexual Offender Registration and Tracking Unit (SORT) arrested 57-year-old Ronald Harvey Sellers of Cocoa on 10 counts of Possessing Child Pornography.

Sellers was arrested on Friday, Nov. 6 and transported to the Brevard County Jail where he has since posted bond and been released.

Maj. Tod Goodyear of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office provided the following details of the investigation which led to the arrest of Sellers:

The investigation was initiated after the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office received information from the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children that images of child pornography had been uploaded and shared on the internet from an unknown location in Brevard County.

Sheriff’s Agents with the Sexual Offender Registration and Tracking (SORT) Unit researched the images and identified the residence where they had been uploaded.

A search warrant was obtained and served at the residence. During the search, forensic examiners recovered images from electronic media belonging to Sellers that depicted infants and young children being sexually abused.

Due to Sellers’ employment with the Department of Corrections, his image is not being released per Florida State Statute. The investigation has revealed that Sellers was involved in volunteer activities as a coach for the Cocoa Little League.

Due to Sellers’ access to children in the same age group as those depicted in the images that were recovered during the search, as well as images that have been discovered during the continuing forensic evaluation of the electronic media from the residence, BCSO agents are asking for anyone in the community that may have information relating to any possible victims to please contact either Agent Troy Deavers of the SORT Unit at 321-633-8407 or CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477).
