Poss of Child Pornography
On Monday, March 20, 2017, Tom Green County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Andy Alwine initiated a child pornography investigation after receiving a Cyber Tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children indicating someone at a residence in the 2000 block of Raney Street, San Angelo, Texas had downloaded known images of child pornography.
On Thursday, March 23, 2017, the Tom Green County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Division executed a search warrant for a residence in the 2000 block of Raney Street, San Angelo, Texas. The search warrant authorized the investigators to search for and seize any item or material that visibly depicted child pornography. Investigators seized digital electronic devices that contained a large number of video files along with digital pictures that depicted children younger than 18 years of age at the time the image was made engaging in sexual conduct. The Tom Green County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by agents of Homeland Security in the execution of the search warrant.
On March 23, 2017, Sergeant Alwine signed a complaint charging RUBEN ORTIZ HARO, age 47, with Possession of Child Pornography, a felony of the 3rd degree. Precinct 2, Justice of the Peace J.P. McGuire issued an arrest warrant and HARO was arrested on the same date and booked into the Tom Green County Jail. Bond was set at $10,000.00. HARO was released from jail on March 24, 2017 after posting bond.
This investigation will be presented to the 119th District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
