A Cincinnati man is behind bars in Florida after being indicted on ten counts of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office says James Bitter, 49, was arrested Wednesday in Lee County by U.S. Marshals.

Police say a search warrant was executed at Bitter's home in February and was the culmination of an online investigation conducted by a Cincinnati Police officer who was assigned to the Regional Electronic & Computer Investigations Task Force. Officers seized one hard drive from Bitter's residence and a subsequent forensic examination determined it contained over 300 videos depicting child pornography. 

Bitter then disappeared from the Cincinnati area following the execution of the search warrant and his whereabouts were unknown.  Further investigation revealed him to be in North Forth Myers, Fla.

Bitter is in the Lee County jail awaiting extradition back to Hamilton County.
