According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, detectives received information on March 25 that David Manas, 62, was knowingly possessing and transmitting images of child porn through the internet.

Manas was arrested Thursday on 30 counts of possession of child pornography and is being held in the Palm Beach County jail without bond.
