Joint Task Force Serves Search Warrant After Child Porn Uploaded from Local Rogue River Apartment Complex (Photo)

JCSO Case 22-4223

 

ROGUE RIVER, Ore. – The Southern Oregon Child Exploitation Team (SOCET) joint inter-agency task force served a search warrant yesterday morning at an apartment complex on the 700 block of North River Road in Rogue River. SOCET served the warrant after discovering numerous images of child exploitation were uploaded from an apartment. Detectives are interviewing possible witnesses and involved parties, and investigations are ongoing. Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) deputies, Southern Oregon High Tech Crimes Task Force (SOHTCTF), Rogue River Police Department officers, and Jackson County District Attorney’s office assisted with the warrant service.

 

During the warrant, investigators seized digital devices which will be forensically examined by 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. 

 

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 Homeland Security Investigations; as well as prosecutors from our local, state and federal law enforcement partners in Jackson and Josephine County.
