LIVE OAK — A Live Oak man was arrested last month for possession of child pornography after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement began an online investigation into its distribution in February.

On April 17, members of FDLE and the Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office arrested 54-year-old Scott Arthur Melanson at his apartment on Helvenston Street for possessing child porn after executing a search warrant at his apartment, according to an FDLE report.

The FDLE investigation traced an IP address that was sharing child pornography online to the apartment, the report states.

During the search of the residence, a forensic preview was conducted on the suspect’s computer and found 11 files of child pornography, according to the report.

Melanson was charged with 11 counts of possession of child pornography.
