Corporal Catherine Payne informed Historic City Newsd that a 53-year-old St Johns County man was arrested today on 30-counts of possession of pornographic images of children performing sexual acts.
The St Augustine Beach resident, Robin Kane Redman, who resides at 104 11th Street, is being held in the St Johns County Detention Facility in lieu of bonds totaling $300,000.
“The sheriff’s Cyber Crimes Unit has been working, with assistance from the St Augustine Beach Police Department, since they became aware of Redman in July,” Payne told reporters. “Sufficient information was gathered using investigative techniques to obtain a search warrant for Redman’s residence last month.”
During the search, numerous computer hard disks and digital media storage devices were seized and subjected to a forensic search. Detectives located pornographic images of children on the devices.
An arrest warrant was obtained and served today without incident. Cyber Crimes Unit detectives are continuing their investigation.
