Pickens County man arrested on child porn charges
By Derreck Booth Editor
FAIRMOUNT - Local and state authorities have arrested a Pickens County man on four counts of sexual exploitation of children.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) and Pickens County Sheriff's Office arrested 36-year-old Thomas Rodriguez of 191 West Destiny Drive on Wednesday.
According to the GBI, Rodriguez was arrested after authorities executed a search warrant of his residence and found evidence of child pornography on computers in the home.
Authorities said the state investigation started after the GBI received several reports from the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children regarding emails with suspected child pornography.
The GBI case led investigators to the address in Pickens County where the arrest happened.
Rodriguez was being held at the Pickens County Jail.
