DELTONA, FL – A 27-year-old Deltona man has been arrested and charged with 17 counts of possessing pictures and videos of children portrayed in sexually explicit situations after detectives were alerted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

According to authorities, 27 year-old Shawn Asbury of Courtland Blvd was arrested Friday and transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail on a warrant following an eight-month investigation.

Sheriff’s detectives began investigating in February after receiving a tip from the center, which notifies law enforcement agencies about possible sexual exploitation of children on the Internet. Detectives executed a search warrant at Asbury’s home where they located multiple photos and videos depicting female children ranging in estimated age from 4 to 11 years old.

The investigation showed Asbury had downloaded at least 63 files and sent them out to other Internet users. At this time, there is no evidence of any local child victims.
