— An Evansville man accused of secretly filming young children at a nude beach in Florida was arrested on 62 counts of possession of child pornography, Rock County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Richard A. Granzow, 42, of 501 South Madison St., No. 11, Evansville, was arrested Sunday for possession of child pornography after investigators from the sheriff’s office and Evansville Police Department served a search warrant for his home at 4:32 p.m. Friday.


The arrest stems from a Friday incident in Florida, during which investigators apparently witnessed Granzow using a hidden camera to film children at a nude beach, officials said.


Detectives determined further evidence was likely located at Granzow’s home in Evansville, prompting Rock County investigators to secure a search warrant.


A sweep of Granzow’s home turned up “multiple items of child pornography and child erotica” and “multiple camera systems,” officials said. The finds led to Granzow’s arrest for 62 counts of possession of child pornography.


Granzow was arrested at 9:30 p.m. Sunday after his return from Florida. He is in custody at the Rock County Jail, pending a court appearance at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
