MELBOURNE, Fla. – A 60-year-old Melbourne man was arrested on suspicion of creating a video that includes pornographic images of a child from Brevard County who was younger than 12 years old at the time.

Eugene Hudome was arrested Thursday and booked on charges of producing child pornography, possessing child pornography and intending to distribute child pornography, according to a a news release from the Brevard County Sheriff's Office.

Goodyear said Hudome has had access to children.

"The possibility exists that he may have victimized some other children in Brevard," Brevard County sheriff's Maj. Tod Goodyear said. "We don't know that for a fact but it's possible."

Deputies investigated Hudome after they got a tip, searching his house at 2237 September Street and seizing a computer and other "electronic media equipment."

Investigators determined Hudome had been downloading child pornography for years and possessed child pornography depicting children from 4 to 6 years old.

Hudome's case is currently in the state system, but Goodyear said Hudome could face federal charges if deputies present the case to those authorities.

Agents are asking anyone with information about this investigation to call Agent Dan Ogden at 321-633-8407 or Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
