A Tallahassee man is arrested on charges of Child pornography. Neighbors who live just driveways reacted when they heard the news.

Tallahassee Police arrested 52-year-old Lorenzo Lee Lenox at his home at 1213 Richview Road Thursday. 5/19

The North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force says during the investigation, agents found child pornography on Lenox's personal computer.

And while his blinds are closed tightly on Friday, some of his neighbors are now getting a glimpse of the man who lives next door.

Concerned neighbor, Ruth Husun says, "You're own neighbor. I don't even know who the neighbor is, but it's scary, very scary."

When we broke the news to Lenox's neighbor, Michelle Wickens, she pulled her children close to her. "I never knew anything this close to home could actually happen because I have two young kids an 8 year old and a 13 year old and it's frightening." says Wickens.

"You click (your mouse on the computer) and then you find it (porn) and that's very bad. It's not right for a child to loose innocence." says Husun

"I'm a very protective mom as it is, maybe too protective. But, it's better to be safe than sorry." says Wickens.

Lenox is facing two counts of distribution and 10 counts of possession of child porn.

Lenox is currently out on bond.
