A total of 67 computer items and 63 electronic items were seized.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Internet Predator Unit (IPU) conducted an initiative to identify and arrest individuals who are engaged in the illegal receipt, possession, production and distribution of child pornographic material.
As a result, the Internet Predator Unit successfully conducted 10 investigations involving subjects in Hillsborough County proliferating illicit graphic material involving very young children.
The IPU with the assistance of HCSO Special Investigation Divisions and the Department of Patrol concluded a two and half month investigation resulting in the execution of 10 search warrants. Six subjects were arrested on 337 felony counts of possession of child pornography.
Additional arrests and charges are pending upon completion of computer forensics for the other suspects not yet arrested. Three suspects were identified and their information was forwarded to other jurisdictions outside of Hillsborough County.
This operation was coordinated with the assistance of Hillsborough County State Attorney Division Chief Rita Peters.
