Peachtree City Man Arrested for Possession of Child Porn

November 15, 2011

Peachtree City, GA – As result of a search warrant executed on Friday October 20, 2011 at a residence in Peachtree City by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force and the Peachtree City Police Department, the GBI charged David Gordon Moll with 1 count of Sexual Exploitation of Children after images of child porn were found on his computer.   Moll, 56, turned himself in today at the Fayette County Jail.

The search warrant was obtained as a result of three cybertips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that reported an unknown subject uploading numerous images of suspected child pornography and child erotica to and/or from a Yahoo! Flickr account. The IP address related to the uploaded images was resolved back to Moll of 143 Rockspray Ridge, Peachtree City, GA. During the search warrant, two computers and several external devices were seized.  The items were forensically examined by a Forensic Computer Specialist with the GBI Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit.  The Forensic Computer Specialist identified numerous digital images of suspected child pornography on the items of evidence.

This investigation is part of the ongoing effort by the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, housed within the GBI’s Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit, to identify those involved in the child porn trade. The ICAC Program, created by the U. S. Department of Justice, was developed in response to the increasing number of children and teenagers using the Internet, the proliferation of child pornography, and the heightened online activity by predators searching for unsupervised contact with underage victims. The Task Force consists of 132 affiliate Georgia law enforcement agencies.

In 2008, the Georgia ICAC Task Force made 109 arrests and in 2009 made 164 arrests. In 2010, the Task Force made 162 arrests. So far in 2011, the Task Force has made 134 arrests. There have been 769 arrests in Georgia by the ICAC Task Force since it was established in 2002.
