AUSTIN - According to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the Attorney General's Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) arrested Gerardo Gamez, 44, of Cedar Park, for ten counts of possession of child pornography on Tuesday.
According to a report, a CEU investigator discovered Gamez was downloading and sharing images and videos of child porn.
The report states that during the search warrant executed on Tuesday, investigators found numerous videos of child pornography on Gamez's laptop computer inside of his home. Gamez later confessed to downloading and sharing the videos.
"Today, we can say another individual who has been arrested no longer poses a threat to the children of Texas, thanks to efforts of the Child Exploitation Unit," said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
"Protecting our children and our communities from criminals is one of the most important jobs we have as law enforcement and I thank all of those involved who helped bring this man to justice," said Paxton.
