LAKE COUNTY, Fla. -- (WKMG) -- A Lake County Boy Scouts den leader is facing multiple child pornography charges after authorities found more than two dozen illegal files on his computer, according to officials with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Michael Douglas Hanen, 67, was arrested at his Umatilla apartment Tuesday after authorities executed a search warrant stemming from a tip they received about his online activity, an affidavit said.

Authorities said Hanen had 38 child pornography images on his HP laptop.

Hanen told authorities that he was "very actively involved in Boy Scouts and has been for the past several decades," the affidavit said. He's being held at the Lake County Jail without bond.

FDLE officials are asking anyone with information about the case to call the Orlando office at 407-245-0888.
