FDLE Arrests Madison County Man for Possession of Child Pornography

 
Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Computer Crime Center (FC3) arrested Keith Strickland, 37, of Lee, Fla., and charged him with ten counts of sexual performance of a child.

Investigators with FDLE, the Madison County Sheriff's Office, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement executed a search warrant at Strickland’s home, located at 1216 SE Bisbee Loop yesterday, after receiving information that child pornography had been downloaded through the Internet at the residence.

During the search, a forensic review of computers located at the home revealed hundreds of images of child pornography.

Strickland was arrested and booked into the Madison County Jail. Additional charges are pending a complete forensic examination of all computers located in Strickland’s home.

FDLE is an active member of the three Internet Crimes Against Children Task Forces in Florida. There are 59 federally-funded task forces nationwide created solely to investigate Internet crimes against children that include the online sexual exploitation of children and child pornography.
