Local man facing multiple counts of sexual exploitation of minors

Bond has been denied for a Carrollton man accused of possessing child pornography. The suspect was interviewed regarding the accusations in late April. He allegedly fled the state soon after his meeting with police. He was captured in Florida this week.

According to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office: “On 04/25/2022, Investigator Courtney Short, was assigned a possible case of sexual exploitation of children through the Georgia Bureau of Investigations. The Georgia Bureau of Investigations Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received one CyberTip report from Dropbox regarding a possible criminal violation such as sexual exploitation of children or offenses involving the possession or distribution of child pornography.

After further investigation it was uncovered that Steven Rodriquez had possession of child pornography. There were multiple digital files linked back to the account of Steven Rodriquez.

 After interview with Steven Rodriguez, he fled the state to Florida where he was later arrested.”
