 Lakeland Man Arrested for Possession of Child Porn 


Polk County Sheriff’s Office undercover Computer Crimes detectives received information about possible child porn being downloaded and distributed from a Lakeland residence.

At approximately 1:00 pm, on Thursday, April 18, 2013, PCSO detectives conducted a search of the residence located at 3962 Feather Drive.  The homeowner, 48-year-old Jeffery Alan White, DOB 02/04/1965, was not at the residence at the time, but was located at his place of employment on Combee Road.

White told detectives he lived alone at the residence for approximately three months.  When White was asked why he thought detectives were there, White responded, "porn on the computer."

White admitted to downloading child pornography for the past seven to eight years, and told detectives he intermittently downloads child pornography and stops “when I get sick of myself."

A forensic preview of White’s yielded over forty (40) files depicting child pornography, with victims ranging in ages from 5 to 12 years of age. 

White was arrested for two counts (2) Promotion of Child Pornography and forty (40) counts Possession of Child Pornography. 

He was transported to the Polk County Jail without incident, and is being held on no bond.
