Easton Man Arrested on Child Porn Charges

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md.- A 19-year-old Easton man is facing multiple charges for allegedly possessing child pornography, according to police. 

Easton police said that on Sept. 12, detectives took Jason Mendez-Perez into custody on an arrest warrant charging him with five counts of possession of child pornography, as a result of
an Internet Crimes Against Children investigation.

Police said the investigation began in July, when investigators with the department's Criminal Investigation, who are assigned to the Maryland Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force,
received information about an internet user actively downloading images of child pornography
online. The investigation led to the identification of a home and a search and seizure warrant
was obtained.

With the assistance of the Maryland State Police and Talbot County Sheriff’s Office, investigators served a search warrant on Sept. 12 at Mendez’s home and recovered multiple pieces of electronic equipment belonging to him.

The forensic examination of electronic equipment is continuing and a full computer forensic examination will be conducted at a later date with additional charges possible, police said.
