MARION COUNTY, Florida (March 13, 2018)- Detectives with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) Major Crimes Unit arrested Kevin Ismael Gonzalez (DOB: 01/15/1992) after he was found to be in possession of multiple files of illicit child pornography.
Gonzalez also possessed Marijuana and numerous items of drug paraphernalia, and he faces charges for those offenses as well. Detective Shannon Wiles with MCSO’s Internet Crimes against Children Division received information that Gonzalez was possessing files that contained child pornography. As a result of a thorough investigation, a search warrant was obtained and was served on Gonzalez’s place of residence on Monday, March 12, 2018. During that search warrant, detectives located his computer, which contained numerous lewd child pornography files.
Marijuana and drug equipment were also found in Gonzalez’s closet. Due to the nature of how Gonzalez had labeled and packaged the Marijuana, drug agents believe his intent was not only to consume his supply, but also to sell it.
Gonzalez was arrested and charged with 20 counts of Possession of Child Pornography, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Sell and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
He is currently being held on $106,000 bond in the Marion County Jail.
