POLK COUNTY, FLA. — On Monday, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 45-year-old father of seven from Mexico after detectives received a tip that he had been downloading files containing child pornography. Nabor Molina, who has been residing in Lakeland, was charged with 125 enhanced counts of Possession of Child Pornography.
“These images are not just pictures of children without clothes. These videos and images are horrific displays of children being forced to expose their genitals, forced to perform sex acts – images of children being raped,” Sheriff Grady Judd said. “Nabor Molina has access to children; at this time in the investigation, it doesn’t appear that any of them are victims, but we will continue to investigate whether he has abused any children he’s had access to. But Molina is a part of a child pornographic exploitation distribution pipeline that victimizes children across the world. His behavior is disgusting.”
The PCSO Computer Crimes Unit began working on the investigation in February 2020 after receiving Cyber TipLine reports from NCMEC (National Center for Missing & Exploited Children). Those tip reports showed that a Google user (later determined to be Molina) downloaded over 200 video files, with several of them depicting child pornography. Once becoming aware of the illicit files, Google reported them to NCMEC.
Detectives reviewed all of the files and identified 125 video files containing child pornography.
After making a connection between the videos to Molina’s residence, internet service, and cell phone, detectives were able to obtain a search warrant for his home.
Early Monday morning, Molina was arrested during a traffic stop, and his cell phone was confiscated. Detectives then served the search warrant at his home. Various electronic storage devices were collected from the residence and will be searched forensically.
Molina admitted to viewing child pornography out of curiosity, and that he accessed it using his WhatsApp account (social media platform).
