Boy Scout leader arrested on 38 charges of child pornography

- The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) reports that their agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Orlando Cyber Crime Task Force arrested 67-year-old Michael Douglas Hanen on Tuesday in Umatilla on 38 counts of possession of child pornography. 

The FDLE says that Hanen was a Boy Scouts leader with a Lake County troop. Given the nature of his arrest and his access to children, the FDLE is asking anyone with information about Hanen to call the Orlando office at 407-245-0888. 

The FDLE says the investigation begun after receiving a tip. During the execution of a search warrant, agents discovered 38 files of children who appeared to be under the age of 18 depicted in sexual images.

Hanen is being held on a no-bond status at the Lake County jail. He will be prosecuted by the State Attorney’s Office, Ninth Judicial Circuit.
