Tampa, Florida -- A two month investigation of a child pornography case ended with the arrest of U.S. Military reservist Steven Brannon, Jr.

Officials say back in June, Hillsborough County sheriff's detectives seized three computers, external and internal hard drives, cell phones and SD cards from Brannon's home. 

Reports indicate that a subsequent computer forensic revealed Brannon's possession of files depicting children approximately 3 to 16 years old engaged in sexual activities.  

Deputies say Brannon was also in possession of child pornography files that he made available for download, which were downloaded by detectives.

Brannon was arrested Thursday without incident, and charged him with eight counts of Distribution of Child Pornography and 21 counts of Possession of Child Pornography.
