ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- William Thomas Leonard Jr. was arrested on 10 counts of possession of child pornography Tuesday after officers searched his home. 

Leonard's arrest is the second arrest for child pornography in two days in St. Johns's County. Sean R. Eckstein was arrested for child pornography possession on Monday.

Eckstein and Leonard were both monitored by detectives with the Sheriff's Office Cyber Crimes Unit. 

The CCU used 'investigative techniques' to determine Leonard, 30, was in possession of child pornography, according to St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.

Kevin Kelshaw, Media Relations Officer for the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office, declined to elaborate on the 'investigative techniques' used by the Cyber Crimes Unit.

Leonard was booked into County jail on no bond pending his first appearance hearing Wednesday morning.

"If you have anything to do with child exploitation or child pornography, either viewing, producing or transmitting, sooner or later we will arrest you," St. Johns County Sheriff David Shoar said. "We will continue to pursue those individuals who victimize our children and grandchildren."
