PINELLAS CO. - An alleged threat to children who entertained kids as a puppeteer is now behind bars in western Florida.

Tampa-area officers arrested 57-year-old Ronald William Brown last week.

Court documents allege he had graphic discussions online about abusing, kidnapping, killing, and eating children.

The complaint says investigators found child porn in his home.

It says they also discovered images of what appear to be deceased children, and a missing-child flier.

Court documents say Brown told police his comments online were just a fantasy, and he would never actually hurt anyone.

The puppeteer's attorney told reporters Tuesday that Brown says he's innocent.
