Pickering

Pensacola Police arrested a 25-year-old man for child pornography after investigators say they found 2,809 child pornography files on his computer.

Ronald G. Pickering Jr. is charged with 10 counts each of possession of obscene material and obscene communication.

He was booked into the Escambia County Jail on a $50,000 bond.

Detective Chris Wilkinson began the investigation June 17 after identifying Pickering’s computer as being used to download sexually explicit pictures and movies of children from the Internet.

Agents with the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which includes agents with the Pensacola Police Department, Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Crestview Police Department, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and Department of Homeland Security initiated a search warrant at Pickering’s this morning.

Additional forensic examination will continue on Pickering’s computer.
