FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A convicted South Florida sex offender has been arrested on new child pornography charges after investigators say they found more than 200 sexual videos on his computer.

Fort Lauderdale police say 42-year-old John J. Brittle Jr. was arrested Friday as part of an undercover operation. A search of Brittle's home computer found more than 200 videos of children being abused by adults, some as young as two years old. Police also found a number of weapons.

Brittle is a registered sex offender from a previous conviction. He's now charged with 30 counts of possession of child pornography and several related charges. In addition, Brittle is charged with firearms possession by a convicted felon and marijuana possession.

No attorney for Brittle was listed Friday in court records.
