Joint Task Force Serves Search Warrant After Child Porn Uploaded from Local Central Point Residence (Photo)

JCSO Case 22-0837

CENTRAL POINT, Ore. – The Southern Oregon Child Exploitation Team (SOCET) joint inter-agency task force served a search warrant this morning at a residence on the 2500 block of Rabun Way in Central Point. SOCET served the warrant this morning after discovering numerous images of child exploitation were uploaded from the residence. Detectives are interviewing possible witnesses and involved parties, and investigations are ongoing.

During the warrant, investigators seized digital devices which will be forensically examined by the Southern Oregon High Tech Crimes Task Force (SOHTCTF) for further evidence of child exploitation. A tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) started the investigation, which led to subpoenas, followed by the search warrant at the residence. Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) deputies, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Jackson County District Attorney’s office, and SOHTCTF assisted with the warrant service.

SOCET is a joint inter-agency task force that started in June of 2020 to combat child exploitation and human trafficking. The task force consists of investigators from JCSO, Grants Pass Police Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and HSI; as well as prosecutors from our local, state and federal law enforcement partners in Jackson and Josephine County.
