Naples, FL (March 18, 2019) – Police arrested 44-year-old Rolando Blanco Correa after he developed a relationship with a juvenile and had her send him personal sexual photos on social media.
Police say that Correa was arrested after convincing the young girl to send nude photos of herself to Correa. Facebook sent the Collier County Sheriff’s Office a tip regarding the exploitation of a child victim on their website. Additionally, Facebook sent files to the Sheriff’s Office that showed the chats the two shared online.
Three files that were sent to the sheriff’s office fit the standards for "child pornography." The chat logs took place between September 2018 to January 2019. On Friday, police had enough probable cause to arrest Blanco at his home in Naples. When police made their arrest, they also found cocaine and heroin.
Blanco allegedly told police that he does work in other states but could not provide any information relating to the work he has done or a phone number where he could be reached. Now, Blanco is facing charges of solicitation of child porn and more.
