HOUSTON—A southwest Houston man was arrested for possessing and distributing child porn, according to Homeland Security investigators.

Jose R. Sanchez, 30, was charged with promotion of child pornography.

Investigators with the Beaumont Police Department contacted the Homeland Security Child Exploitation Unit on September 15 to report that Sanchez was possibly distributing graphic images of children.

Investigators were using peer to peer computer internet networks searching for possible child pornographers and traffickers when Sanchez’s computer was flagged.

After obtaining a subpoena, investigators went to his home.

A search of Sanchez’s computer conducted on November 16 uncovered multiple images and videos of underage children engaging in various sex acts with adults.

Charges were filed and his bail was set at $30,000.
