BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Palm Bay Police arrested 18-year-old David Lucio at his home Tuesday morning on 10 counts of possession of child pornography and 2 counts of transmission of child pornography, according to spokeswoman Karyn Barber with the Palm Bay Police Department.

He is currently being held at the Brevard County Jail on a $420,000 bond.

This past November Palm Bay Special Victims Detectives began investigating a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) after the email address and IP address used to upload and view child pornography images traced back to Palm Bay.

According to a release by the police department, investigators worked through the process of issuing the required subpoenas and warrants to Google and other service providers and the information provided ultimately led them to the home of the suspect, David Lucio.

An initial scan of the computers found at Lucio’s home revealed multiple files containing child pornography videos and still images.

At this time investigators have found no evidence of local victims associated with this case and it is believed that all victims are internet related, according to police.
