A Naples man was arrested after he developed a relationship with a juvenile and had them send personal pictures to him through social media that were sexual in nature.

On Friday, Collier County Sheriff’s Office arrested Rolando Blanco Correa, 44, in Naples after he was found to have convinced a child to send him nude pictures of themselves.

According to the CCSO arrest report, a cyber tip was received from Facebook regarding the exploitation of the child victim on its website. Following investigation, Blanco was determined to be the suspect, and Facebook provided the sheriff’s office with files that were sent from the victim to Blanco as well as excerpts from their chats online.

He did not know the name of the business he worked for, address or location for where he would be working in the future.
