Child Pornography Found in FL Self-Storage Unit, Elderly Man Charged With Possession


A 76-year-old Florida man has been charged with possessing and promoting child pornography after decades-old material was found inside a self-storage unit he rented. Police first saw evidence of explicit pictures when they responded to a call to assist Fleetwood D. Peeples Jr., who had fallen inside a unit at an Uncle Bob’s Self Storage property in Orlando.

Peeples required medical attention at a local hospital, but investigators did not detail the extent of his injury or how he fell. Police obtained a search warrant after assisting Peeples and uncovered several pictures of young children believed to be 5 to 12 years old performing sexual acts. "The images appeared old, indicating that the victims would be approximately 30 to 50 years old today," investigators said last week in a press release.

Peeples is being held in the Orange County Jail on $12,500 bail. He has no prior record, according to the source.

As part of their investigation, police are searching for anyone who may have been victimized by Peeples when they were children. Anyone with information connected to the case are encouraged to call the Orlando Police Department's Special Victim's Unit at 407.246.2963.
