According to the Santa Ana Police Department, Joseph Martinez was arrested Tuesday at his home.  He is charged with three counts tied to child pornography: possession and control of child pornography, distributing obscene matter to a minor and bringing obscene material into California.

Police received a “cyber-tip” from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children alleging that Martinez was storing and trading images and videos with other users across several online platforms.

SAPD officers serving a search warrant at Martinez’ home seized electronic devices that are being examined for additional content.
