Registered sex offender arrested for possessing child pornography

A registered sex offender in Ocala was arrested Thursday after local and federal law enforcement found child pornography in his possession.

Marion County Sherriff's deputies arrested 30-year-old Michael Auld after receiving an anonymous tip.

Auld has since been charged with twenty counts of possession of child pornography along with possession of methamphetamine and other drugs.

Neighbors are relieved he is off the streets for now.
