(The AEGIS Alliance) – On Thursday, a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department sergeant was placed under arrest following him purportedly possessing and also distributing child porn, according to police in Fontana.
There was an investigation into 43-year-old Marc Goodwin that started when cops obtained a report coming from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that showed the suspect had digitally sent a photo consisting of possible child porn.
Investigators found out that Goodwin was undoubtedly the one who possessed and also distributed a number of pictures that contained child pornography, authorities pointed out in a press release.
Goodwin purportedly sent out the pictures from an e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org. Authorities seized multiple electronic devices in the course of a search warrant that will be evaluated for additional evidence, police stated.
Goodwin was booked into the Rancho Cucamonga jail.
Marc Goodwin had earlier operated as a homicide investigator, a press release on the Sheriff’s Department internet site from 2017 showed.
The department is cooperating with the investigation, police stated.
In a tweet on Thursday mid-day, Sheriff John McMahon stated he assisted authorities in the apprehension and also that Goodwin has been fired from his position with the department.
“I find it extremely disappointing when a member of our department acts in a manner that discredits the good work being done daily by our deputies,” the tweet said. “The fact that a sergeant has been arrested makes this particularly egregious because they administer supervision of line staff.”
Anyone that may have received pornographic images from Goodwin’s email address, or has additional details concerning the suspect is urged to contact Detective Brad Guith at email@example.com.
by our deputies. The fact that a sergeant has been arrested makes this particularly egregious because they administer supervision of line staff. After assisting Fontana PD with Marc Goodwin’s arrest, he is no longer employed with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.”
