FRANKFORT, KY - Kentucky State Police executed 13 search warrants recently in nearly half of all the post locations in the state. The operation was centered around internet related child exploitation investigations and resulted in the arrest of seven individuals on Possession and Distribution of Matter Portraying the Sexual Performance by a Minor.
Among the seven was a Green County, KY, man:
This week, the Electronic Crime Branch, along with troopers and detectives from seven KSP post areas, served search warrants covering nearly half the Commonwealth. The Richmond, Morehead, Pikeville, Harlan, London, Frankfort and Columbia KSP posts all participated in the operation. To date, seven supects have been arrested. Additonal charges are expected upon complete examination of all the evidence obtained during execution of the search warrants.
The KSP Electronic Crime Branch is part the Kentucky Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, which is made up of dozens of officers throughout the Commonwealth who investigate the crime of child sexual exploitation. KSP administers the task force, one of 61 coordinated programs created nationwide in an effort to combat the growing problem of child sexual exploitation. The task force has officers at every level of law enforcement from local, state and federal departments in Kentucky.
"This operation was successful because of a lot of hard work by some very dedicated officers around the state," said Lt. Shane Bates, commander of the KSP Electronic Crime Branch. "Technology now allows offenders to share pornographic material with people anywhere in the world at any time. The arrests this week provide only a small glimpse into the true nature of the problem we are facing".
"Kentucky ICAC Task Force investigators are committed to making the Internet a safer place for Kentucky's children," Bates said. "Our goal is to locate and arrest someone before they have the opportunity to harm a child."
