The head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement in South Florida is reportedly the target of a criminal investigation for possessing child pornography.

Anthony V. Mangione, 50, is being investigated by the FBI for allegedly storing child pornography on his computer, according to the Miami Herald.

Over the weekend, FBI agents searched the Parkland home and west Miami-Dade office of Mangione, who has been in charge of ICE's regional office since 2007, the Herald reported.

The paper couldn't reach him for comment.

It's unknown if anything was found on Mangione's computer, but there are no court records that show he's been charged with any crime.

Mangione has frequently spoken out against kiddie porn "predators" and lauded ICE's efforts to combat the crime.

He was planning on retiring this summer after 27 years at ICE and it's predecessor, the U.S. Customs Service.
