Detectives with the Corpus Christi Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, Organized Crime Unit Detectives and Agents with the Department of Homeland Security Investigations, have announced they have arrested a 26-year-old man, accused of soliciting and producing child pornography.
Police say they executed a search warrant at the home of 26-year-old Jesus Ramirez.
Ramirez had two warrants for online solicitation of a minor and production of child pornography, with a total bond amount of $200,000.
When Ramirez was arrested, they found he had marijuana and investigators say he was additionally charged with possession of marijuana.
Meanwhile, Detectives with the Internet Crimes Against Children have identified four separate juvenile victims through their investigation. They say Ramirez conversed via the internet with minors and then blackmailing them into sending images of child pornography.
Investigators also concluded Ramirez solicited the minors to meet him for sex.
It was reported to Investigators that Jesus Ramirez was identifying himself on social media with several aliases to include; Justin Ramos, Travis Gallegos and Adrian Soto, along with the use of fake profile pictures.
Police say it appears that none of the victims knew of his true identity.
This investigation is still active and ongoing, and there exists the possibility of additional victims that have yet to come forward. Anybody with information concerning this case is encouraged to call the lead Investigator, Senior Officer Alicia Escobar at (361) 826-2996.
