Crime > LAPD works in conjunction with AG task force

Weeks after the Los Alamos Police assisted the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office in the arrest of alleged child pornographer and Los Alamos resident David Rael, police have arrested another resident in an unrelated case.
This time, police, along with special agents from the N.M. AG’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, arrested White Rock resident Christopher Davis, 21, Tuesday. The search warrant and resulting arrest were triggered by a criminal summons out of Anoka County, Minn. from the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the Anoka County sheriff, Davis was wanted for sending lewd photos to a 14-year-old girl, who is also a resident of Anoka County.
However, a deeper investigation police revealed other related crimes allegedly committed by Davis.
“During the execution of the search warrant and further investigation it was determined that Christopher Davis was also engaged in criminal sexual acts in Los Alamos County,” LAPD said in a released statement. Altogether, Davis has been charged with four counts of sexual penetration of a minor, criminal sexual communication with a child, child solicitation by electronic device and sexual exploitation of a child (manufacturing).
Apparently, according to the arrest warrant, Davis also had physical sexual contact with two girls, aged 14 and 15 he met at a local concert in May. Police said that the girls initiated contact with Davis, and they later proceeded to go to the Quemazon trailhead to “make out.” From there, police said, Davis continued to have contact with at least one of the victims through Skype and an anonymous texting service called “Whisper.” Police said Davis and his victim would mutually “role play” certain sexual acts using the electronic services.
Lead Det. Sgt. Oliver Morris gave credit to his fellow detectives as well as the ICAC Task Force for the arrest of Davis.
“The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force is a national program that helps local enforcement develop an effective response to child predators who seek to harm children through computer technology,” said Morris. “We are proud to be a part of the ICAC program as an effective means of promoting and preserving the safety of the children in our community.”
Morris also added that their partnership with the ICAC would probably continue to yield arrests in Los Alamos County.
“Due to the increase of online activity conducted by child predators, this program will something that we will continually be a part of,” he said.
