KISSIMMEE, Fla. -

A 71-year-old Kissimmee man was arrested on child porn charges.

Alberto Andres Rubi was arrested on 12 counts of possession of child pornography.

According to the Osceola County Sheriff's Office, an investigation began February 1 when detectives received information of possible illegal activity at an IP address.  Detectives later discovered that Rubi used the IP address to download pornographic movies involving children, the Sheriff's Office said.

On March 4, detectives obtained a search warrant for his home on Elderwood Court in Kissimmee. They took into evidence multiple computers and electronic storage devices.

Rubi was questioned and told detectives that he downloaded the videos out of curiosity, but added that he knew the videos were illegal, deputies said.

According to Rubi, he does not know any of the children depicted in the videos, the Sheriff's Office said.

Rubi was arrested and booked into the Osceola County Jail on a $300,000 bond.
