(BOYNTON BEACH, FL) – An impounded Ford Focus led to the discovery of two flash drives containing child pornography.

According to the arrest report, one of the owners of City Towing in Boynton Beach inventoried items in an abandoned 2007 black Ford Focus after it had not been claimed from their tow lot for the required 35 days.

That’s when the discovery was made.

The report says staff members found a safe and a laptop, and they broke open the safe and found two thumb drives, two SD cards, and an iPhone SE. When they reviewed the contents of the thumb drives, they found “images of naked children and videos of juvenile females engaged in sexual activity.”

The owner of Big City Towing told deputies that he watched three to four seconds of one of the videos before turning it off saying it “made his stomach hurt.”

The owners of Big City Towing called authorities, and deputies issued an arrest warrant for 45-year-old Andrew Wayne Vivadelli.

Vivadelli was arrested Sunday on 30 counts of possession of child pornography.
