3. Golden Gate teen arrested on 70 counts of child pornography

A Golden Gate teenager was arrested at his home Tuesday on multiple child pornography charges, officials said. According to a Facebook post from the Collier County Sheriff's Office, the teen was arrested on 70 counts of child pornography.

“This is a heinous and disturbing crime, and our dedicated detectives have put an end to it,” Sheriff Kevin Rambosk said.

As a matter of policy, this newspaper does not name minors placed under arrest.

The teen is charged with 35 counts of transmission of child pornography; 35 counts of possession of child pornography; and one count of possession of child pornography with intent to promote three or more images.

Deputies began investigating after after they received three cyber tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding the transmission of dozens of files of child pornography on a Google Drive account, officials said.

Those files showed children ranging in age from one up to 13 engaging in sexual acts with adults and other children. – Tomas Rodriguez/Staff
