A Lake County registered sex offender has been arrested on Thursday after deputies say he was posting child pornography pictures on a blog.

Paul Parmer, 47, has been charged with possession of child porn, promoting sexual performance with a child and failure to report an email address after deputies searched his Leesburg home on Thursday.

Deputies said a cyber crimes tip led them to Tumblr account, registered to Parmer's IP address but with a third email address that Parmer didn't provide to deputies as required by law as a registered sex offender.

Parmer had the Tumblr account for approximately 5 weeks before disabled it, during the time which he shared approximately 200 images believed to be child pornography. The youngest child was 14 years old, deputies said.

Parmer was booked into Volusia County jail on $60,000 bond because of two previous incidents, deputies said.
