BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton resident Anthony Pascale is being held in the Palm Beach County Jail on multiple charges of possessing child pornography after he was turned in to the Boca Raton Police Department by Google.

Google, according to the police report you can read below, told the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Lake Park — which involved Boca Raton Police — that Pascale was using GMail to either transmit or receive images that appeared to be child pornography. Google provided IP addresses and other related information to detectives who later subpoenaed Comcast to confirm the information.

Pascale, of 57 SW 15th Court, was arrested midday on Tuesday following what the police report suggests was an early morning raid on his residence.
