The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 68-year-old Nokomis man Tuesday afternoon for possession of child pornography.

Detectives investigating Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) determined an internet protocol (IP) address was used to download 24 files previously identified as containing child pornography.

During a search of his home and forensic scan of his computers, detectives recovered more than 40 video files determined to be child pornography.

Dalrymple was arrested Tuesday and charged with 40 felony counts of Possession: Sexual Performance by a Child. He remains at the Sarasota County Jail without bond. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending.
