The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a 19-year-old after detectives found he was in possession of child pornography.
After receiving information from the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, a court-authorized search warrant was authored for the suspect’s cloud-based storage account. Detectives found dozens of files of child pornography on the account. Further investigation revealed the suspect had additional videos of child pornography downloaded to his cell phone.
The suspect, Jacob Rubio, was arrested without incident. He faces 100 counts of Possession of Child Pornography.
“This is sickening to me and it will not be tolerated,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “Our children should be protected at all costs. The suspect selfishly exploited children and will now pay the consequences for his disgusting behavior. I commend our detectives for their thorough investigation and arrest of this individual.”
Rubio remains at the Orient Road Jail on a $750,000 bond at this time.
