ORLANDO, Fla. -- A 58-year-old Orlando man was arrested Friday on a warrant after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said its agents found child porn in his home.

John Walter Cobble was subsequently charged with seven counts of possession child pornography.

Here is a synopsis of what led to John Walter Cobble's arrest, according to an FDLE spokeswoman Angela Starke: Agents found five pictures on a disk drive and two more on a separate digital device that showed sexual images of children. When agents arrived at Cobble's home, he did not let them inside, so they forced their way in.

Cobble was booked into the Orange County Jail where he was being held without bail, pending a first appearance hearing before a judge, likely today.
