San Jose Man Accused Of Having More Than 10,000 Child Porn Images

SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – A 61-year-old man suspected of having more than 10,000 child pornography images was arrested in South San Jose Monday morning, a Santa Clara County sheriff’s spokesman said.

Dennis Valle Cruz was arrested on suspicion of possession and distribution of child pornography, sheriff’s Sgt. Richard Glennon said.

The investigation began through the sheriff’s Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Task Force that was able to download about 10,000 pictures and videos of child porn, Glennon said.

They learned Cruz owned the images and tracked him down to a San Jose address, according to Glennon.

Detectives served a search warrant around 7 a.m. at the suspect’s home in the 1700 block of Oakwood Avenue with help from the FBI and San Jose Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, Glennon said.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, Cruz was in the process of downloading more child porn when police arrived at his house.

They found 1,000 more graphic images and videos of child pornography on Cruz’s computer and media drives, according to Glennon.

Cruz is in custody at Santa Clara County jail on $50,000 bail, according to online jail records.

Anyone with information on the case has been asked to contact the sheriff’s SAFE task force by calling (408) 808-4300 or sending an email to safetaskforce@sheriff.sccgov.org.
