Golden Gate man arrested, faces child pornography charges
A Golden Gate man was arrested and charged with 60 counts of child pornography possession following a cyber tip.
Brooklyn Parker Clements, 26, of Teak Wood Drive was also charged with one count of possessing child pornography with intent to promote.
The Collier County Sheriff’s Office investigated after receiving a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding the transmission of child pornography. CCSO detectives traced the activity to Clements’ residence and identified him as a suspect.
Clements consented to a search of his cell phone after detectives arrived at his home, and child pornography was found on it. Detectives obtained a search warrant for Clements’ cell phone and a subsequent forensic examination revealed more than 700 files of child pornography, depicting children ranging in age from infants to pre-teens engaged in sex acts with adults and other children.
The investigation also found Clements chatting on the internet with possible children and other predators, including participation in chat rooms with names such as “Girls under 16” and “Under age 10.”
“There was substantial evidence of Brooklyn’s desire for sex with children on his cell phone,” Exploitation Section Sgt. Wade Williams wrote in the arrest report.
The investigation also found Clements was using a file sharing application “that is commonly used by child exploitation offenders around the world who are interested in trading child pornography,” according to the arrest report.
Clements turned himself into CCSO custody at the Collier County jail on Monday. His bond was set at $310,000.
