Josue Centeno, 38

Fort Myers man arrested on child porn charges after tips from Google and Facebook

A Fort Myers man was arrested Wednesday on charges of child pornography after multiple images were found on his computer.

Josue Centeno, 38, faces 10 counts of possession of child pornography. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office said that due to the quantity and explicit nature of the images, Centeno’s charges were enhanced from a third-degree felony to a second-degree felony.

“This predator is behind bars where he belongs,” said Sheriff Carmine Marceno. “Our Special Victims Unit Detectives and Digital Forensics Unit followed up on every single lead. I am proud of the hard work they did to take Josue Centeno off the streets.”

In December 2019 and January 2020, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received 14 tips from both Google and Facebook that child pornography was being uploaded to the internet.

The LCSO investigation found evidence that Centeno uploaded numerous photos and videos that depicted children in a sexual manner.

Centeno remains in custody at the Lee County Jail. His bond has not been set.
