PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Jorge Isaac Brenes has been arrested and charged with 50 counts of possession of material depicting sexual performance of a child.

The Palm Beach County Sexual Predator Enforcement arrested Brenes after a joint investigation by the Special Victims Unit (Palm Beach County Sexual Predator Enforcement) of the State Attorney's Office, the Palm Springs Police Department, the Boynton Beach Police Department and the Boca Raton Police Department.

The sexual predator enforcement effort uses a sophisticated computerized data-mining and tracking program to identify, investigate and prosecute "super-predators" who are abusing child victims in Palm Beach County.   

Each count of the 50 carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison per count.
 
The probable cause affidavit says, after a search warrant and seizing of the defendant's computer, law enforcement found many images of child pornography.

This investigation is ongoing.
