LAKELAND, Fla. -- A Florida man has been arrested after deputies say a neighbor found a cellphone memory card containing child porn images in his trash, according to authorities.

Michael Allen Wright, 22, of Lakeland has been charged with 15 counts of possession of child porn images.

Polk County Sheriff's Office deputies say several bags of Wright's belongings were discarded in front of a residence on Nov. 25.

A neighbor asked the homeowner if she could collect the items and was granted permission, police say.

A day later, deputies say Wright asked for his belongings back. Most were returned.

On Nov. 30, investigators say the neighbor discovered a broken cellphone in one of the bags she had forgotten to return. She placed the phone's memory card in her own phone and discovered the images.
