Ponte Vedra man arrested on child pornography charges


A 19-year-old Ponte Vedra Beach man was arrested on two counts of possession of
child pornography and one count of transmission of child pornography Sept. 22, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.

The suspect, identified as Neal Douglas Buckles, 19, 205 Duckwood Lane, was located in Jacksonville this morning and brought in for questioning. He was then booked into the county jail on no bond pending a first appearance hearing Friday morning.

Detectives with the Sheriff’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit began an investigation a
month ago after receiving a Cybertip that the suspect had allegedly transmitted suspected child pornography. The investigation revealed that the suspect was in possession of at least two images that had depicted the sexual performance of young children.
